Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. West Virginia follows the federal leak detection rules for USTs, containers, hazardous waste storage tanks, landfills, and surface impoundments.

All hazardous waste landfills and surface impoundments must have a leak detection system as part of their liner system. Underground tank systems containing leachate located at solid (nonhazardous) waste landfills must have secondary containment and a continuous leak detection system installed in the form of a double-walled tank so that any release from the inner tank is completely contained by the outside shell. See the national sections CONTAINERS, HAZWASTE STORAGE AND TREATMENT TANKS, LEAK DETECTION, LANDFILLS, and SURFACE IMPOUNDMENTS for more information.

See the national sections ABOVEGROUND STORAGE TANKS and UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS for more information. See the national section SPILL PREVENTION—SPCC PLAN for a discussion of how the plan provides for monitoring leaks and other releases.
