The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) - Division of Waste and Hazardous Substances -Tank Management Section (TMS) formed the UST Advisory Committee (USTAC) in 2016 to guide development of the Draft Amendments to the Underground Storage Tank (UST) regulations; and provide input and advice regarding other requirements relating to DNREC's UST Program. With the assistance of the USTAC, the objective is to include federally-mandated changes, as well as any other changes that would facilitate regulation, operation, maintenance and closure of regulated USTs. The USTAC will also help integrate best management practices. The Tank Management Section will rely on the USTAC to represent both private industry and public interests for the UST Program.
Please contact Alex Rittberg at: Alex.Rittberg@state.de.us or by phone at 302-395-2500 if you would like to join the USTAC - new members are always welcome!
The most recent version of draft changes to the Underground Storage Tank regulations can be found here. The Department is maintaining a comprehensive list of changes in a spreadsheet here. The Department’s next step is to address comments made at the June 28, 2017 meeting and to share an updated draft to both the USTAC and the Environmental Protection Agency by July 28th.
