Subchapter 001 : Underground Storage Tank Regulation

(Cite as: 10 V.S.A. § 1928)
  • § 1928. Regulation of farm and residential large motor fuel tanks

    The Secretary shall establish rules for the new installation of or reentry into service of farm and residential underground storage tanks of greater than 1,100 gallons that are or have been used for storing motor fuel for noncommercial purposes. These rules shall establish registration requirements and requirements that address tank condition, composition, size, type, compatibility, and method of installation. No person shall install or reenter into service such a tank after the effective date of these rules without complying with these rules. The Secretary also shall adopt rules that establish requirements for any monitoring or leak detection system or inventory control system or tank testing system deemed appropriate and maintaining records thereof. The rules also shall establish requirements for reporting of any releases and taking corrective action, requirements for tank closure and evidence of financial responsibility, and requirements for the upgrade or closure of tanks by December 22, 1998 that do not meet standards adopted to prevent releases due to corrosion, and spills or overfills. These rules for new and existing tanks shall take into account the unique schedule of home and farm use. Inventory control measures shall be appropriate to these uses. After December 22, 1998, no person shall deliver a regulated substance to a farm or residential tank regulated under this section if that tank is not visibly designated on the premises in a manner prescribed by the Agency as meeting standards adopted to prevent releases due to corrosion, spills, or overfills.
