Underground Storage Tank Program - ITCMI

Underground Storage Tank Program

Funded by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

This project allows ITCMI Environmental Services Department to provide direct assistance to the owners and operators of underground storage tanks (fuel service stations), to ensure that RCRA Subtitle I is fully implemented in Indian Country. The compliance inspector travels to the stations located within the exterior boundaries of the reservations, and provides education and recommendations to make sure the station is following the federal regulations for underground storage tanks. These site visits include a check for proper record keeping, as well as a physical inspection of the equipment on-site.

There are currently thirty five (37) regulated facilities located within the boundaries of the participating tribal reservations. The compliance inspector visits each regulated UST facility at least once every three years. Compliance assistance is offered to all participating Tribes when requested.  By providing compliance assistance, the Tribes can not only be re-assured protection of their groundwater, but also be prepared before EPA or other credentialed inspector conducts an inspection of their facility.
