10

Basic information that should be kept on UST systems include all of the following EXCEPT:

A.. Leak detection performance and maintenance
B. Records that show a repaired or upgraded system is properly handled.
C. Records that show were safety equipment is located.
D. Records that show the required inspections and test of the corrosion protection system.

C. Records that show where safety equipment is located

11

D. Compressed natural gas.

B. Bio diesel

13

Defined the term UST system.

An underground storage tank system consists of the tank and any underground piping connected to the tank that has at least 10% of its combined volume underground.

Regulations apply to only underground tanks and piping storing either petroleum or certain hazardous substances.

Exempted
-heating oil tanks
-tanks that hold less than 110 gallons

14

What is an AST?

As defined in the regulations, an aboveground storage tank storage or bulk storage container is any container used to store any type of petroleum products located aboveground.

Some are regulated depending on the quantity stored at the facility.

Date thanks
Elevator reservoir tank’s
Double walled steel tanks
Double world tanks with a concrete exterior wall in steel interior wall
Belly tanks
Single walled steel tanks

15

Describe the procedures for replacing a UST with an AST.

You should work with a professional architect and or engineer to review building codes, organizational needs, and state or local regulations.

When planning the replacement, you will need to consider fuel loading procedures in proportion’s that apply to both USTs and AST’s, and depending on the type of tank the state regulatory agency may require cathodic protection.

Installing double walled tanks double walled piping and appropriate leak detection equipment

16

When does the SPCC rule take affect?

Current regulations state that if your facility stores over 1320 gallons of oil in containers (55 gallon drums or a Estes) above ground has more than 42,000 gallons of oil for heating or emergency generator needs stored in partially regulated or unregulated US tees, your facility is regulated under the SPCC regulations.

The SPCC rule states that there must be a reasonable expectation of an oil discharge into or upon navigable waters

17

What are the requirements for installing and upgrading a UST?

Tank construction and installation-The tank and piping must be installed according to industry codes

Release detection – the UST system must be able to detect leaks

Spell and overfill protection – UST system must have devices that provide spell and overfill protection

Corrosion protection – the UST system must have corrosion protection

18

Describe the basic leak detection requirements.

Basic qualifications of a leak detection system are:

-You must be able to detect a leak from any portion of the tank or the piping

-Your leak detection must be installed, calibrated, operated, and maintained in accordance with the manufacturers instructions

– your leak detection must meet the performance requirements described in the federal regulations

19

What are the suction piping leak detection requirements?

The two requirements for suction piping that does not require a leak detection are:

– the piping is sloped so that the piping is contents will drain back into the storage tank if the suction is released

– only one check valve is included in each suction line and is located directly below the suction pump

20

Explain the first step for evaluating leaks.

Double check your UST system, it’s connections, it’s leak detection, and instruments to make sure they’re working properly.

Regulations require that the appropriate regulatory authority be notified of all caps on suspected leaks all caps off unless a determination could be quick we made that a suspected leak is due to equipment malfunction or failure.

21

What are the procedures for preventing overfills?

Make sure there is enough room in the tank for the delivery before the delivery is made; this is usually done by sticking the tank to determine how much space is left inside and double checking the readings on the ATG

Watch the entire delivery to prevent overfilling or spilling

Use overfill protection devices

Respond immediately to alarms

22

Which records should be kept on UST systems?

Records of leak detection performance and maintenance
-The last year’s monitoring results, and most recent tightness test
– copies of performance claims provided by leak detection manufacturers – records of recent maintenance, repairs, and calibration of on site with detection equipment

Records that show the required inspections in tests of the corrosion protection system

Records to show a repaired or upgraded UST system is properly repaired or upgraded

Records of the site assessment results required for permanent closure for at least three years after closing a UST

23

Describe the AST preventive measures.

Most of the preventative measures for UST’s – whether Dwayne design installation, and/or maintenance – applied to Estes, the some techniques are different.

Grounding is required so that static charges do not build up and cause a fire or explosion

AST’s have to consider the impact of weather, especially freezing of contents, corrosion due to rusting of tanks, their connections and controllers; and heat build up due to sunlight and ambient temperatures

24

What are some of the sustainable fuel choices?

ULSD-ultra low sulfur diesel

Bio-diesel
