Annual Walkthrough

In 2015, the US EPA published new regulations for underground storage tanks that includes updated testing and inspection requirements.  In addition to now requiring 30-Day Walkthrough Inspections, UST owners and operators must conduct an annual walkthrough inspection of the UST system.

30-Day Walkthrough

The US EPA published new regulations in 2015 for underground storage tanks that includes updated testing and inspection requirements. Implementation of the new requirements varies depending on which state the UST system is in and if that state has an approved state regulatory program (SPA) or not.


When buying a used car, it’s generally recommended that the prospective buyer ask a trusted auto mechanic to inspect the vehicle prior to purchasing. C-stores shouldn’t be any different!

EPA & State Compliance

The US EPA state program approval (SPA) regulations require that state programs be at least as rigorous as the federal program. Overall, state regulators have similar requirements for their petroleum storage tank owners, though there are some differences from state to state. R&A makes sense of the regulations so you can focus on your business!
