Comparison: State vs. Federal
· Rules. Idaho has a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) -approved underground storage tank (UST) program and follows the federal UST rules as revised in 2015, incorporating most of the regulations by reference. Specifically, Idaho follows the federal requirements for petroleum and hazardous substance USTs, applicability, design, construction, installation, notifications, secondary containment, release detection, operation and maintenance requirements, delivery prohibition, closure, release reporting, corrective action, operator training, and financial responsibility. However, if there is an inconsistency between the state and federal regulations, the state regulations will prevail.
Idaho also requires annual UST fees and has the Petroleum Storage Tank Fund (PSTF) that provides coverage for cleanup costs and third-party claims resulting from accidental releases.
