Tim Laughlin, P.E.
The author has attempted to greatly simplify Federal and North Carolina Petroleum Underground Storage Tank (UST) regulations. Many states have their own UST installation, environmental and clean up regulations. The vast volumes of paper work and technical documents available make a short synopsis of the subject necessary. Petroleum UST environmental compliance, operations and maintenance installation regulations change constantly regarding the storage of Flammable & Combustible Liquids. The clean up of petroleum contaminated soils and water from leaking underground storage tanks (LUSTs) constantly stay active in all states. Most states have trust funds set aside to facilitate federal and/or state clean up standards.
Fire Codes (NFPA or IFC) should also be included for the proper installation of petroleum UST, this course will only focus on the environmental compliance of petroleum USTs.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
