Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation
DAR File No.: 41396

NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
Section 19-6-403 of the Utah Underground Storage Tank (UST) Act gives the Utah Waste Management and Radiation Control Board authority to regulate USTs and petroleum storage tanks and make rules for administration of the petroleum storage tank program and the adoption of applicable Federal UST regulations. Subsection 19-6-105(1)(g) of the Solid and Hazardous Waste Act gives the Board the authority to establish standards governing USTs.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
During rulemaking in 2016, Utah's UST rules were reviewed by representatives from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure that the changes Utah proposed to incorporate the 2015 EPA UST regulations would not jeopardize Utah's ability to receive State Program Approval (SPA) from EPA. In reviewing the rules, EPA pointed out an apparent typographical error in the proposed change to Rule R311-202.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
The rule is necessary for the continued operation of the Underground Storage Tank program. It provides for the incorporation by reference of the federal UST regulations (40 CFR Part 280) and is specifically mandated by Subsection 19-6-403(1)(b) of the Utah UST Act. Therefore, this rule should be continued. The typographical error found during EPA's review was corrected in the proposed rule.
