New UST Secondary Containment Requirements: How To Prepare For Necessary Changes To Ensure EPA Compliance
|Date / Time:
States are busy changing underground storage tank (UST) rules to meet the new federal EPA requirements that went into effect a year ago.
If you have a secondarily contained UST system, you may be facing additional inspecting, testing and monitoring requirements.
Over the next two years, tank systems must come into compliance with the new regulations – so it’s essential that you know what you need to do for your UST system and when.
Join us when Ben Thomas, UST expert and trainer, will discuss the new changes and ways to prepare in the upcoming months.
About Your Presenter:
- Why the EPA made revisions
- The must-know compliance deadlines
- Critical compliance details on secondary containment principles and technologies
- Tricks to correcting common problems
- Tips about preparing for the deadline
Ben Thomas brings the UST industry over 28 years of experience, networking and ideas to help owners and inspectors solve complex technical problems in the management of underground storage tank systems. His experience goes back to 1986, when he supervised UST removals in Vermont. Between 1989 and 1995, he oversaw cleanup of leaking UST sites in northern Alaska. From 1995 to 2002, he ran Alaska’s UST leak prevention program. He gained national attention for his innovative work in web page development, outreach material, financial responsibility compliance, and most notably the Alaska third party inspection program. Since leaving Alaska in 2002, his principal focus has been education, training, and outreach to the nation’s UST owners, operators, inspectors and technicians.
Mr. Thomas led the nation’s first state-approved Class A/B operator class in Oregon in 2003 and has been training nonstop ever since. From Guam to Puerto Rico and many points in between, he continues to look for new ways to make his UST classes interesting, relevant and sometimes fun. Currently, he manages USTtraining.com, an online training school for Class A, B and C operators. Between his live, webinar and online classes, he’s trained more UST operators than any one person in the US. He also offered free information to UST operators and inspectors with his popular YouTube series. His mission is to help protect the nation’s drinking water supplies one tank at a time.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
