Description of Proposed Guidance Document Changes
The Storage Tank Program Technical outlines and discusses procedures used by DEQ staff following the release of petroleum into the environment. Volume 6 provides guidance related to managing petroleum contaminated media at leaking storage tank sites. This volume replaces Chapter 6 of the Fourth Edition of the Storage Tank Program Technical Manual issued in 2011. The General VPDES Permit for Petroleum Contaminated Sites, Groundwater Remediation, and Hydrostatic Tests (a.k.a. the Petroleum Discharge General Permit) has been updated and re-issued since the effective date of the Fourth Edition of the Storage Tank Program Technical Manual. Information related to the Petroleum Discharge General Permit and managing discharges of petroleum contaminated water under this permit have been updated. The Storage Tank Program had not previously provided any information about the use of various chemical countermeasures following petroleum releases. Volume 6 now includes general guidance for the use of chemical countermeasures following a petroleum release. Options for managing petroleum contaminated soil have been expanded to include allowing emergency response contractors to temporarily store petroleum contaminated soil at their facilities as long as they are doing so in accordance with the solid and hazardous waste management regulations. Volume 6 has also been updated to incorporate procedures from DEQ’s guidance for the Management and Reuse of Contaminated Media.
