"For the first time in over 25 years, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed significant revisions to the 1988 underground storage tank (UST) regulations. The current UST regulations require owners and operators of USTs to provide a method or a combination of methods of release detection from any portion of the tank and connected underground piping that routinely contains regulated substances."
