Title: 47 CSR 63 – Aboveground Storage Tanks Emergency Rule

On December 22, 2014 the WV DEP filed the proposed WV Aboveground Storage Tank Act – Emergency Rule with the WV Secretary of State office. A copy of the draft rule is available at http://www.dep.wv.gov/WWE/abovegroundstoragetanks/Documents/DRAFTASTRuleupdated121614.pdf.

This draft built upon the rough draft of the rule informally release in September 2014. There are a number of changes from the rough draft but many of the concerns of industry were not addressed in the new version.

Comments on the new version will be accepted until January 21, 2015.
