Underground Storage Tanks (USTs)

Report to Congress on a Compliance Plan for the Underground Storage Tank Program

(EPA-510-R-00-001). June 2000.

Congress in its FY2000 Appropriations Committee Conference Report directed the U.S. EPA to prepare and submit to Congress a compliance plan regarding the underground storage tank (UST) program. EPA developed this 70-page report in response to that request. The report presents information and cost estimates necessary to: identify USTs that are not in compliance with Subtitle I of the Solid Waste Disposal Act; identify USTs in temporary closure; determine the ownership of USTs not in compliance or in temporary closure; determine the plans of owners and operators to bring USTs into compliance or out of temporary closure; and determine how USTs, for which no owner can be identified, will be brought into compliance or closed permanently.
