Tank Tip

February Tank TIp:


A new UST Installation Notification Form was published in August 2016. This form replaced prior versions and should be used to notify the DERR of repairs, upgrades or an installations for a new UST system at least 10 (ten) days before work begins on any UST system.

For emergency repairs to a UST system, notification by email is acceptable. If, during the process of completing on-site work, additional repairs or upgrades are identified, contact the DERR project manager by phone or email to provide notice of the changed scope. This will be considered notifying the DERR for that additional work.

The new Installation Notification Form comes in two different formats. One is an on-line fill-in form for quick emailing to the DERR and the second is the traditional PDF form. The Form can found at:
