Free Tank Replacement Budget Consultation
Single wall tank replacement must be completed by December 31, 2025; many double-walled tanks have or soon will pass their useful life of 30 years and will need to be replaced.
Western Pump is here to help.
The State of California Senate Bill #445 requires owners and operators to permanently close or replace Underground Storage Tanks containing hazardous substances not in compliance with new requirements by December 31, 2025.
This new law affects all single-walled tanks as well as those not designed and constructed in accordance with alternative fuels.
Tank owners/operators have three options before December 31, 2025:
- Close the tank in place after being authorized by the board
- Remove the tank from its site completely
- Remove and replace the tank
Loans and grants are available through the RUST program to assist eligible small businesses in removing single-walled Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) and replacing them with double-walled USTs. Do not wait until the very last minute or you may miss out on a great opportunity for funding.
In addition to needing to meet the requirements of CA Senate Bill #445, facility operators with aging USTs may also need to consider removing or replacing them. Most manufacturer warranties cover USTs for 30 years. Research on national trends by ASTSWMO and the EPA reveals that the average historical UST lifespan is about 20 years. Many insurance companies will not insure tanks older than 20 to 25 years old. Facility operators with older USTs are faced with difficult choices.
If you believe your underground storage tanks need to be closed, removed, or replaced or you would like additional information, please contact Western Pump to learn more. We can provide a FREE tank replacement budget consultation to help you plan for the updates required.
