Who Must Notify? Section 9002 of Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), as amended, requires owners of USTs storing regulated substances (unless exempted) to notify designated State or local agencies of the existence of their USTs. The State of Nevada requires any facility changes to facility information or UST system status, must submit a notification form (only amended information needs to be included).
- New USTs: If you install a new regulated UST you must notify the NDEP within 30 days of putting the UST into operation.
- Existing USTs: If you come into ownership of an existing UST you must notify the NDEP. Any person who sells a facility with a regulated UST must inform the purchaser he/she must notify the NDEP of new ownership. The seller should also provide the UST implementing agency with contact information of the new owner.
- Closing USTs: You must notify the NDEP at least 30 days prior to permanent closure of a regulated UST.
