Includes a Small Business Impact Review
Date Filed: 4/1/2001
Pursuant to Executive Order Number Twenty-five (1998), the Department of Environmental Quality on behalf of the State Water Control Board, will review the Underground Storage Tanks: Technical Standards and Corrective Action Requirements regulation (9 VAC 25-580-10 et seq.). The purpose of the review is to determine whether the regulations should be terminated, amended or retained in their current form. The review of the regulations will be guided by the principles listed in Executive Order Number Twenty-five (1998).
The purpose of these regulations is to protect public health and/or welfare with the least possible costs and intrusiveness to the citizens and businesses of the Commonwealth; to establish procedures and requirements for design, construction, installation and general operation to ensure a minimum number of future tank leaks will affect human health and the environment; and to establish procedures and requirements for release reporting, investigation and response and corrective action to provide for efficient cleanups when leaks occur.
The department and the board are seeking public comment on the review of any issue relating to these regulations including whether (i) the regulations are effective in achieving their goals; (ii) the regulations are essential to protect the health, safety of welfare of citizens or for the economical performance of important governmental functions; (iii) there are less burdensome and less intrusive alternatives for achieving the purpose of the regulations; and (iv) the regulations are clearly written and easily understandable by the affected persons.
Comments on the above are welcome and will be accepted until April 16, 2001. Comments should be sent to Fred Cunningham, Department of Environmental Quality, Post Office Box 10009, 629 East Main Street, Richmond, Virginia 23240-0009, (804) 698-4285, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
