MassDEP Issues New Underground Storage Tank Rules: 310 CMR 80.00

On January 2, 2015, MassDEP adopted a new Underground Storage Tank Regulation (“UST”, 310 CMR
80.00) that addresses design/construction/installation, registration, operation, maintenance and inspection of
UST systems used to store petroleum fuels and hazardous substances. These new rules have been
developed to implement M.G.L. c 21O, which was established by Section 7 of Chapter 4 of the Acts of 2009.
This law also transferred regulation of most aspects of the Commonwealth’s UST Program from the
Department of Fire Services (DFS) to MassDEP. The new regulation maintains the basic requirements
established by DFS’s regulation (527 CMR 9.00, which was rescinded on January 1, 2015) and by the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency. MassDEP has also updated and streamlined requirements designed to
protect groundwater from UST system leaks.
