Does Your Emergency Generator System Comply With UST Regulations?

Emergency generator systems must comply with all underground storage tank regulations. Most underground storage tanks used for commercial purposes will be covered by either CT or Federal regulation, meaning that they must be registered and monitored while in use, and that the CT DEEP and/or the Federal Government must be notified before they are removed or decommissioned.

What Is Required If My Tank Is No Longer In Use?

If an emergency generator system is operational and is intended to be available for emergency use, the tank is considered active and the owner does not need to notify the authorities or close the tank; however, if the emergency generator system is taken out of service, the tank must be permanently closed within one year.
