Rules. An effective leak detection program establishes standards, including system design, for preventing spills, releases, and unnecessary contamination. Kentucky's leak detection requirements generally follow federal requirements, with additional requirements for air emissions, hazardous waste landfills and surface impoundments, hazardous waste containers and tanks, and underground storage tanks (USTs). See the national section LEAK DETECTION for a discussion of federal leak detection requirements. In addition, refer to the state section RELEASE NOTIFICATION to review Kentucky's leak response and reporting requirements. Also see the state section SPILL PREVENTION—SPCC PLAN for a discussion of how the plan provides for monitoring of leaks and other releases.
