Underground Storage Tanks (USTS)
[Return to Main Articles Index]

Underground storage tanks (UST) are an issue effecting all states in the Delaware Valley. They can be found in commercial as well as residential property. Though they share a lot of commonalities in their regulations and remediation, there are differences. Here are links detailing the policies and procedures regarding underground storage tank installation, testing, removal and remediation when necessary.
Underground Storage TankThe definition of an UST, as set forth in N.J.A.C. 7:14B-1.6: is any one or combination of tanks, as set forth in N.J.A.C. 7:14B-1.4, including appurtenant pipes, lines, fixtures, and other related equipment, used to contain an accumulation of hazardous substances, the volume of which, including the volume of the appurtenant pipes, lines, fixtures and other related equipment, is 10 percent or more beneath the surface of the ground. A 'Tank' is a stationary device designed to contain an accumulation of hazardous substance which is constructed of non-earthen materials (for example, concrete, steel, plastic) that provide structural support.
An UST is a system consisting of a tank or combination of tanks, and the underground piping connected to it. Underground means below the surface of the surrounding soil (ground or pavement), but not in an area which is completely open for tank inspection such as some mines or basements. Systems containing more than very small quantities of regulated substances, where the system volume is greater than 110 gallons and where at least 10% of the system volume is beneath the surface of the ground are regulated in Pennsylvania by the Storage Tank Program.
Underground storage tanks (USTs) are used throughout the State of Delaware to store various petroleum based products and by-products, for many purposes - by a variety of industries and agencies. Products stored include but may not be limited to: heating oil, gasoline, diesel, kerosene, jet fuel, waste oil (or used oil), hydraulic oil (commonly used with vehicle lifts), and propane. These products provide many useful purposes. The most noticeable of which can be that of heating a home or business, providing fuel for vehicles at service stations, state police troops, inspection lanes and maintenance shops, schools, transportation bus yards, agricultural use, airports (private, public, national guard) and marinas. USTs are both federally (EPA) and state regulated and are required to be properly installed by a certified and licensed contractor. Guidelines and regulations governing underground storage tanks, sizes and products which are regulated are listed on the Air & Waste Management's website. (DNREC Online: UST - EIS)
EPA Office of Underground Storage Tanks (OUST)
What are USTs and why do we regulate them? - About 650,000 underground storage tank systems (USTs) nationwide store petroleum or hazardous substances that can harm the environment and human health if the USTs release their stored contents. The Office of Underground Storage Tanks (OUST) was created in 1985 to carry out a Congressional mandate to develop and implement a regulatory program for underground storage tank (UST) systems.
