    • Abstract:
      The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has over 4,000 fuel storage tanks (FST) in its inventory. Most of these FSTs are underground storage tanks (UST) that contain fuel for emergency backup generators providing secondary power to air navigational facilities This order establishes agency policy, procedures, responsibilities, and implementation guidelines for compliance with regulations pertaining to underground storage tanks (UST) of the Federal Aviation Administration as required by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (52 U.S.C. section 6901 et seq.), as amended by the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 (Public Law 98-616) and other acts, and as implemented by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's "Underground Storage Tanks; Technical Requirements and State Program Approval; Final Rules regulation, 40CFR Parts 280 and 281." Although no one comprehensive Federal regulation on aboveground storage tanks (AST) existed prior to publication of this order, AST's are affected by various regulations such as the Oil Pollution Prevention regulation codified at 40 CFR Part 112. This order also addresses FAA policy on AST's until a single comprehensive regulation is promulgated. 48p.
