The goal of the Montana Underground Storage Tank (UST) Leak Prevention Program is to protect human health and the environment by preventing releases of petroleum and hazardous substances from UST systems. The release of these regulated products into the environment threatens groundwater resources and can cause explosive vapors to seep into confined spaces and occupied dwellings.
The objectives of the UST Leak Prevention Program are to ensure that:
EPA publishes new publication on corrosion study of steel and steel components of USTs storing diesel fuel. For UST owners and operators who store diesel fuel, the Montana DEQ Underground Storage Tank Program highly recommends reading the EPA notice using the link below.
State rule requires owner(s) of underground storage tank facilities keep DEQ's Underground Storage Tank Program informed of any changes of information relative to their facility (e.g., facility name, owner(s), tanks, financial responsibility) within 30 days of the change. Forms for this purpose are located at http://deq.mt.gov/Land/ust/forms.
NEW - 2015 Federal Revised Underground Storage Tank Regulations - do not go into immediate effect in Montana, except for those located in Indian Country and administered by EPA. See more information on Implementation here.
