The TCEQ has announced that it will be changing its rules for cleaning up Leaking Petroleum Storage Tank (LPST) sites before February 2009. Under the proposed rule, LPST cleanups would be completed under the Petroleum Storage Tank rules in chapter 334 of the Texas Administrative Code, instead of Risk Reduction Program rules in chapter 350, as they are currently. The change will likely have the most cost-saving benefits for low risk sites.
