§ 2651. Recording Requirements for Unauthorized Releases.
(a) Owners or operators required by section 2650 to record a release or condition shall comply with the requirements of this section.
(b) The operator's monitoring records, as required under section 2712 of Article 10, shall include:
(1) The operator's name and telephone number;
(2) A list of the types, quantities, and concentrations of hazardous substances released;
(3) A description of the actions taken to control and clean up the release;
(4) The method and location of disposal of the released hazardous substances (the monitoring record shall indicate whether a hazardous waste manifest was or will be used);
(5) A description of the actions taken to repair the underground storage tank and to prevent future releases. If this involves a change as described in section 25286 of the Health and Safety Code, notification pursuant to that section shall be made.
(6) A description of the method used to reactivate the interstitial monitoring system after replacement or repair of the primary containment.
(c) The integrity of the secondary containment shall be reviewed for possible deterioration under the following conditions:
(1) Hazardous substance in contact with the secondary containment is not compatible with the material used for secondary containment;
(2) The secondary containment is prone to mechanical damage from the mechanical equipment used to remove or clean up the hazardous substance collected in the secondary containment; or
(3) Hazardous substances, other than those stored in the primary containment system, are added to the secondary containment to treat or neutralize the released hazardous substance and the added substance or resulting substance from such a combination is not compatible with the secondary containment.
(d) If a recordable unauthorized release becomes a reportable unauthorized release due to initially unanticipated facts (e.g., secondary containment is breached due to deterioration), the release shall be reported pursuant to section 2652.
(e) Whenever the local agency reviews the operator's monitoring reports and finds that one or more recordable unauthorized releases have occurred, the local agency shall review the information included in the monitoring records pursuant to subsection (a), shall review the permit, and may inspect the underground storage tank pursuant to section 2712 (e) and (f) of Article 10. If the local agency finds that the containment and monitoring requirements of Articles 3 or 4 can no longer be met, the local agency shall require the owner or operator to cease operation of the underground storage tank system until appropriate modifications are made to comply with the requirements of Articles 3 or 4, as appropriate.
