The Steel Tank Institute (STI) is in the process of updating several of its publications and seeks feedback on the following: SP001 Standard for the Inspection of Aboveground Storage Tanks and SP031 Standard for Repair of Shop-Fabricated Aboveground Tanks for Storage of Flammable and Combustible Liquids. The deadline for submitting comments is April 20, 2016 and must be done using STI’s online form. You can also find out more information about STI’s work in their latest Tank Talk newsletter.
Also of interest in this issue of Tank Talk is a report on a recent study of aging USTs by the Association of State and Territorial Solid Waste Management Officials (ASTSWMO) Tanks Subcommittee. The committee conducted in-depth studies of aging USTs in Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Minnesota, Missouri, Utah, Vermont, and Washington. In addition to the age of the UST, the committee investigated state regulations regarding aging tanks and financial assistance available for leaking UST clean-up.
