July 15, 2015 New Federal Rules. EPA’s updated underground storage tanks (UST) regulations are final and have been published in the Federal Register. You can access these regulations via EPA’s website at You can download the EPA informational brochures Implementation Time Frames for 2015 Underground Storage Tank Requirements and UST System Compatibility with Petroleum-Biofuel Blends. Please note that the implementation deadlines for specific requirements in the Implementation Time Frame brochure do not apply to petroleum storage tank systems in New Mexico. New Mexico has state program approval (SPA) and has three years to reapply in order to retain our SPA status. New Mexico must adopt the revised federal rules in order to maintain SPA status with petroleum storage tank regulations. This means that until New Mexico’s regulations are revised and receive EPA approval, owners and operators in New Mexico must continue to follow current state requirements. More detailed information is available in the NEW EPA publications, Musts For USTs and UST System Compatibility with Biofuels. Again, implementation deadlines in these do not apply to New Mexico.

NOTICE regarding July 1, 2013 AST Upgrade Deadline, May 24, 2013.
