Event Details

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is offering a FREE one-day workshop to help those responsible for complying with DEC Petroleum Bulk Storage (PBS) regulations for aboveground storage tanks (ASTs) or underground storage tanks (USTs). This workshop is specifically designed to help personnel at local government facilities comply with the PBS regulations (6 NYCRR Part 613). Personnel encouraged to attend this workshop include DPW commissioners/superintendents, tank system managers/supervisors, engineering staff, tank operators, etc.

This workshop will be taught by DEC staff and environmental consultants with decades of combined experience in petroleum storage tank compliance. DEC staff will answer your compliance questions. You will come away with a better understanding of DEC PBS Regulations and tools that will help you:

  • Achieve and stay in compliance with the PBS regulations;
  • Prevent costly spills/releases to the environment; and
  • Avoid fines and penalties associated with noncompliance.

By the end of this interactive workshop, you will be able to answer the 7 key questions below. You will also produce the outline of a "PBS Facility Compliance and Training Plan" tailored to your facility. The agenda will include the following:

  • Navigating DEC's 6 NYCRR Part 613
  • 7 Questions You Need to Answer: 

1. Is my tank system(s) subject to the PBS regulations?

2. What portions of Part 613 applies to my tank system(s)?

3. What tank system equipment do I need to have?

4. How do I make sure that my facility complies with the PBS requirements?

5. Am I subject to the new Operator Training requirements and how does that work?

6. How do I self-assess my compliance with the PBS regulations?

7. How do I properly close a tank system?

  • Your Compliance and Training Plan -- Next Steps
