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.
