DEQ, One Stop, Resolve Underground Storage Tank Act Violations

Helena — The Montana Department of Environmental Quality announced that One Stop, LLC has agreed to resolve violations of the Montana Underground Storage Tank Act that occurred at One Stop Cenex in Valier.

One Stop failed to conduct a compliance inspection in a timely manner, and failed to test the corrosion protection system at the facility.   Shasta Steinweden of DEQ’s Enforcement Division explained that by not performing tests on the corrosion protection system, an owner would not know if the underground storage tanks are being adequately protected from corrosion. 

One Stop has agreed to test the corrosion protection equipment, submit results of the test to DEQ, obtain a reinspection, and pay a $210 penalty.

For questions concerning the Underground Storage Tank Program and laws, please contact the Waste and Underground Storage Tank Bureau at (406) 444-5300 or visit DEQ’s website at:
