Action:
Revisions needed to be consistent with changes made to Facility and Aboveground Storage Tank (AST) Regulation 9VAC25-91 and other editorial changes
 
General Information
Action Summary The Aboveground Storage Tank and Pipeline Facility Financial Responsibility Requirements specify the criteria by which operators of aboveground storage tanks containing oil and oil pipeline facilities can demonstrate adequate financial resources for the containment and cleanup of any oil discharge which may occur at their facilities. Amendments are being made to this regulation as a result of changes made to a companion regulation, the Facility and Aboveground Storage Tank (AST) Regulation (9VAC25-91). The Aboveground Storage Tank and Pipeline Facility Financial Responsibility Requirements regulation (9VAC25-640) specifies the financial assurance requirements for pipeline facilities and aboveground storage tanks regulated by the Facility and Aboveground Storage Tank (AST) Regulation (9VAC25-91). The Facility and Aboveground Storage Tank (AST) Regulation (9VAC25-91) contain the technical requirements for registration of facilities and individual ASTs, as well as the standards and procedures for operators of certain facilities relating to pollution prevention, and oil discharge contingency plans. Section 30 of the Facility and Aboveground Storage Tank (AST) Regulation (9VAC25-91) excludes certain activities from regulation. Exclusions from regulation are also listed in § 30 of the Aboveground Storage Tank and Pipeline Facility Financial Responsibility Requirements (9VAC25-640). This amendment modifies the language in § 30 of the Aboveground Storage Tank and Pipeline Facility Financial Responsibility Requirements (9VAC25-640) to include the revisions made to the exclusions in § 30 of the Facility and Aboveground Storage Tank (AST) Regulation (9VAC25-91). An obsolete section is also being deleted from the Aboveground Storage Tank and Pipeline Facility Financial Responsibility Requirements regulation. Regulations are periodically reviewed as required by Executive Order 17 (2014) and §§ 2.2-4007.1 and 2.2-4017 of the Code of Virginia, and the obsolete section is no longer needed or applicable.
