Under & Above Ground Petroleum Tank Management (UST & AST)

Underground Storage Tank (UST) and Aboveground Storage Tank (AST) management has been an integral part of PPM’s services since the inception of our firm. PPM has completed thousands of UST and AST projects throughout a 15-state region. Much of this work has been completed under state-administered trust fund programs. In order to be eligible for reimbursement under state trust funds, the responsible party must be in “substantial compliance” with the applicable regulations.

EPA promulgated new UST compliance rules in 2015 which states have recently implemented in various stages, requiring routine inspections, equipment testing, and operator training. PPM routinely assists tank owners in maintaining compliance with these complex requirements.

Large AST facilities are also subject to their own set of rules, including SPCC compliance, SP001 Tank Inspections for shop-built steel tanks less than 50,000 gallons, AST Registration with respective state agency, and NPDES permits if applicable to facility. PPM provides high-quality AST compliance services to help AST facilities manage these assets.
