Focus on Delivery Prohibition or “Red Tagging”
Focus on Delivery Prohibition or “Red Tagging” (Number of pages: 2) (Publication Size: 171KB)
|Description||In 2007, the Washington State Legislature amended the state Underground Storage Tank (UST) law (Chapter 90.76 RCW) to include requirements of the federal Energy Policy Act of 2005. In August 2012, the Department of Ecology (Ecology) revised the UST rule (Chapter 173-360 WAC) to implement delivery prohibition of regulated substances to facilities that are not in compliance with state and federal UST laws and rules. The delivery prohibition rule is effective October 1, 2012. Ecology will use a red-colored tag to identify each tank that is prohibited from receiving regulated product or having waste oil removed. The red tag will be placed on the fill pipe so that the UST is clearly identified as ineligible and is easily visible to anyone delivering product or withdrawing waste oil.|
