Underground Storage Tanks (USTs)

State Compliance Reports on Government Underground Storage Tanks - 2005 Energy Policy Act

Background and Requirements

Title XV, Section B of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 amends Subtitle I of the Solid Waste Disposal Act, the original legislation that created the underground storage tank (UST) program. The UST provisions of the Energy Policy Act focus on preventing releases and direct EPA to help states comply with new UST requirements.

Section 1526 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 requires each state to submit a report regarding each noncompliant underground storage tank located in its jurisdiction that is owned or operated by the federal, state, or local government. A copy of the report was submitted to EPA's Administrator August 2007.
