Description Washington state’s Underground Storage Tank (UST) regulations, Chapter 173-360, are known as “the UST rule.” On July 18, 2018, Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) repealed Chapter 173-360 and adopted new UST rule, Chapter 173-360A. The new rule is effective beginning October 1, 2018.

The UST rule governs the installation, operation, maintenance, and closure of underground storage tank systems that contain petroleum or other regulated substances. The rule also governs the detection of, responses to, and financial responsibility for releases from those systems.

This report provides the reasons for adopting the UST rule. It describes differences between the proposed and adopted rule. It also provides Ecology’s response to public comments on the proposed rule. This documentation is required by the Administrative Procedure Act (RCW 34.05.325).
REQUEST A COPY The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
