- Class V Wells: In 1999, EPA added new requirements for large-capacity cesspools and motor vehicle waste disposal wells.
- Underground Storage Tanks
- Automotive Maintenance and Repair: CCAR-GreenLink is an information center available to service technicians interested in environmental compliance information related to the automotive industry.
Idle Free Zones: Many states and dozens of local jurisdictions have idling laws, including specific laws regulating idling at loading and unloading locations.
- Gasoline Dispensing (PDF) (2 pp, 125K, About PDF): You may need to determine the leak rate and cracking pressure of pressure-vacuum vent valves installed on gasoline storage tanks. You may also need to conduct a static pressure test on your gasoline storage tanks. You must also meet Underground Storage Tanks (UST) regulatory requirements.
- Diesel Fuel Pump Labeling: regulations that require all retailers and operators of fleet fueling facilities (wholesale purchaser-consumers) to label diesel fuel pumps with specific language notifying persons dispensing diesel fuel into vehicles of the sulfur standard of the fuel, and the vehicles for which it is appropriate.
- Fuel Pump Labeling (PDF) (3pp, 165K): The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued fuel pump labeling and other requirements for gasoline blends containing more than 10 and up to 15 percent ethanol, known as E15. These requirements will help ensure that E15 is properly labeled and used once it enters the market.
- EPCRA Sections 311-312 : Any facility required under Occuptational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations to maintain material safety data sheets (MSDSs) for hazardous chemicals stored or used in the work place. Facilities with chemicals in quantities that equal or exceed the following thresholds must report:
- For gasoline (all grades combined) at a retail gas station, the threshold level is 75,000 gallons (or approximately 283,900 liters), if the tank(s) was stored entirely underground and was in compliance at all times during the preceding calendar year with all applicable Underground Storage Tank (UST) requirements at 40 CFR part 280 or requirements of the State UST program approved by the Agency under 40 CFR part 281.
- For diesel fuel (all grades combined) at a retail gas station, the threshold level is 100,000 gallons (or approximately 378,500 liters), if the tank(s) was stored entirely underground and the tank(s) was in compliance at all times during the preceding calendar year with all applicable Underground Storage Tank (UST) requirements at 40 CFR part 280 or requirements of the State UST program approved by the Agency under 40 CFR part 281.
- Transportation Environmental Resource Center : Provides compliance information for individuals or companies that move hazardous waste from one site to another by road, rail, water, or air. This includes transporting hazardous waste from a generator's site to a facility that can recycle, treat, store, or dispose of the waste.
- Reverse Logistics / Return Shipments of Hazardous Materials (PDF) (17 pp, 173K) : Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration advance notice of proposed rulemaking to add a definition of reverse logistics and to establish general requirements and regulatory exceptions for hazardous materials return shipments.
- Refrigerated transport: moves products from one place to another while maintaining necessary temperatures, and include refrigerated ship holds, truck trailers, railway freight cars, and other shipping containers. SNAP has identified substitutes for CFC-12, R-502 and other ODSs.
- Underground Storage Tanks: Any owner who brings an underground storage tank system into use after May 8, 1986, must submit a notification form (EPA Form 7530-1) to the state or local agency or department designated to receive such notice.
- Gasoline Dispensing (PDF) (2 pp, 125K, About PDF): Regulations controlling air emissions from gasoline dispensing facilities may require you to submit a Initial Notification and Notification of Compliance Status.
- Motor vehicle or mobile equipment surface coating operations: Initial Notification (informs EPA that the facility is subject to the standards and when the source will be in compliance), Notification of Compliance (certifies that the source is in compliance with the applicable requirements), and Annual notification of changes reports may be required.
