The purpose of this bill is to amend the Aboveground Storage Tank Act to address and correct certain unintended consequences of the original enactment. The program is now focused on tanks with a capacity of 10,000 gallons or above within zones of critical concern of public water utilities. Definitions are amended and added. The owner or operator of a tank will certify its compliance with an approved industry standard or program, or to the standards developed by the DEP by rule. Releases are defined in the same way as in other programs administered by the Department of Environmental Protection. Spill prevention and response plans are required. Much of article 31 has been deleted although key provisions have been moved into article 30.
