(Washington, D.C. - Thursday May 25, 2006) EPA has released for public comment three draft documents which contain grant guidelines for underground storage tank systems. The draft guidelines will establish minimum requirements on delivery prohibition, secondary containment, and financial responsibility and certification that states must meet to be in compliance with provisions of the Energy Policy Act. EPA worked with states and other partners to develop the grant guidelines and, when final, will incorporate them into grant agreements between EPA and states. EPA will accept public comments on these three draft guidelines until June 24, 2006. EPA's Web site provides the public with the draft guidelines, as well as details about how and where to submit comments.
