Natural disasters – such as tornadoes, hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and fires – are often unpredictable, cause significant damage, and can be costly to mitigate. Underground storage tank (UST) systems can be vulnerable to damage during natural disasters and can even release regulated substances into the environment. Before returning a damaged UST to service, the owner or operator needs to ensure the system has been properly evaluated and restored to safe operating condition.
EPA developed resources to help UST owners and operators prepare for, prevent, or lessen catastrophic effects and environmental harm from natural disasters.
Most states and territories have rules that allow for state UST inspectors to “red tag” or seal your fill pipe until certain compliance issues are addressed. Are you one of those states? Being the best UST operator you can be can help reduce the unwanted surprise of a red tag.

We recently came across a good EPA video explaining Stage I vapor recovery. That’s the process of collected vapors during the delivery iof a UST delivery and returning those vapors back to the tanker truck for recycling. It’s a tad wordy but worth sharing with folks who need a primer in Stage I rules.
