Proposed Rule Changes

Proposed Underground Storage Tank Rules

On October 13, 2015, federal underground storage tank requirements became final and mandated that all states implement new federal requirements for underground storage tanks by not later than October 13, 2018.  The federal rules can be found at 40 CFR 280.  In addition, Illinois will be updating its rules to streamline and update its processes and requirements at the same time.   

OSFM will be accepting comments during the 45 day public comment period, from Friday February 23, 2018 through Monday April 9, 2018.  Comments may be sent to:
