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 www.epa.gov/oust/fedlaws/revregs.html. New Mexico is an approved program, and, therefore, the changes to the federal regulations will not be in effect until New Mexico adopts them. States with approved programs have three (3) years to adopt the regulations and seek program approval.
The Petroleum Storage Tank Bureau will be reviewing the new regulations and evaluating necessary revisions to the New Mexico Petroleum Storage Tank regulations (20.5 NMAC).
