Author(s) Toxics Cleanup Program
Description The Department of Ecology revised the Underground Storage Tank (UST) rule (Chapter 173-360 WAC) in August 2012, to establish emergency response requirements. The WAC requires that each UST facility have properly trained and certified Class A and B designated person(s) and, at manned UST facilities, at least one individual manning the facility must be a C operator. Also, each UST facility must have signage posted that provides emergency response information. The signage requirements took effect on October 1, 2012.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
