§ 63.3. Records and information on underground storage tank systems--Reports by certain agencies, districts, and institutions--Priority list for removal or repair--Approval of removal--Report to Legislature
A. The Office of Management and Enterprise Services shall establish and maintain adequate records and information on all underground storage tank systems owned and operated by the state or any agency of the state, including but not limited to school districts or any agency thereof and institutions of higher learning.
B. Upon the effective date of this act,1 every state agency and school district and institution of higher education owning or operating an underground storage tank system shall furnish and deliver to the Office of Management and Enterprise Services a report of the underground tanks owned and operated by the agency, district or institution detailing location of the tank, the age, condition of any such tank and installation methods, if known.
C. Prior to the report, each agency, district or institution shall:
1. Make a visual assessment of the tanks owned and operated by them to determine whether evidence of leakage from the tank has occurred;
2. An examination of fuel records during the past year to determine if input equals output; and
3. Determine based upon visible assessment and upon information the condition of the tank, expected life of the tank, present and future need for the tank.
D. Based on the information received from the agencies, districts and institutions, the Office of Management and Enterprise Services shall establish and maintain a priority list on state owned and operated underground storage tank systems with the tanks needing removal or repair due to leakage given the greatest priority.
E. Upon establishment of the priority list, as funds become available for such purposes, the Office of Management and Enterprise Services shall provide for the upgrade, repair or removal of tanks owned and operated by said state agencies, districts or institutions so as to meet the federal protection standards for underground storage tank systems by 1999. When possible an internal assessment of the tanks shall be made and as a preference over removal except in cases of economics or extent of deterioration of the tank, or future need of the tank, and when needed the tank shall be upgraded pursuant to the most current edition of the National Leak Prevention Association Standard No. 631.
F. Except in an emergency situation no tank shall be removed without the approval of the Office of Management and Enterprise Services after determination that removal would be more cost effective than repairing or upgrading the tank.
G. By January 15 of each year, the Office of Management and Enterprise Services shall make a written report to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President Pro Tempore of the Senate listing:
1. The number of tanks owned and operated by state agencies, districts and institutions; and
2. How many tanks were removed and replaced or removed, or upgraded and an estimated cost of bringing the tanks into compliance with federal law requirements by 1999.
