Underground Storage Tanks
National Summary
In 1984, Congress responded to the increasing threat to groundwater posed by leaking underground storage tanks (USTs) by adding Subtitle I to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), through the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments, creating a federal program to regulate USTs containing petroleum and hazardous chemicals to limit corrosion and structural defects. The federal UST program also established operating requirements and technical standards for tank design and installation, leak detection, spill and overfill control, corrective action, and tank closure.
