Notice of Rulemaking Hearing

The Underground Storage Tanks and Solid Waste Control Board is proposing two major changes to Chapter 0400-18-01. First, the current rules make fund coverage for a fund eligible release dependent upon an owner or operator's compliance history. With these revisions, all fund eligible will be entitled to reimbursement from the fund; however, an owner or operator's compliance history will now determine the amount of the fund deductible. Second, the revisions will suspend annual tank fees from July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2026. The amendments will also provide general cleanup revisions to Rules 0400-18-01-.09 and 0400-18-01-.10.  The Notice of Rulemaking Hearing and the Redline version are below
