Tank Tip

August 2018 Tank Tip:

RE: Double Walled Spill Buckets and Sumps with Crossover Tubes

In order to be exempt from the requirement for integrity test every three years, double-walled spill buckets must:

  • have a gauge indicating that liquid is not present in the interstice,
  • be monitored monthly using a visual inspection, and
  • have a monthly inspection log.

If the gauge is broken or indicates liquid in the interstice, the bucket must be repaired and tested.

Sumps installed for product piping using interstitial monitoring for leak detection are not required to be tested every three years if:

  • crossover tubes are properly installed and functional, and
  • operators maintain a monthly written inspection log for each sump.

If you have any questions, contact a member of the UST Compliance Section at 801 536-4100.
