Regulations

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) through a Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) established by Congress in 1984, wrote and published regulations that require owners/operators of underground storage tanks to prevent, detect, and clean up releases. In 1996 Rhode Island became one of 31 states in the country approved by the EPA to manage its own underground storage tank management and clean-up program, and has currently completed 864 cleanups.
