Attention: UST Owners and Operators Reply

The owners/operators of most underground storage tanks (USTs) in Massachusetts were required to have their USTs and associated piping inspected by third-party inspectors by August 8, 2010. As these inspections are to be completed every three years, repeat inspections are due this year by August 8, 2013. CAPACCIO has qualified third-party inspectors on staff and can complete the required inspections.

Third-party inspectors conduct detailed inspections of USTs and piping systems, and:

•Document the results of their on-site inspections;
•Review facility record keeping to ensure the tank meets UST Program requirements; and
•Submit reports on their findings to the Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP).

If you have completed an inspection in the past and are not sure of the due date for your current inspection, MassDEP has compiled a list of UST inspection due dates. Access the list here.

Please note that USTs that store fuel used for “consumptive use” only are exempt. Consumptive use tanks supply fuel used for area heating and domestic hot water only. All other tanks, including tanks that supply fuel to emergency generators, must be inspected.
