 Underground Storage Tank Program

The Underground Storage Tank (UST) Program is mandated by the state. The Amador County Environmental Health Department is the Local Implementing Agency for the UST program in Amador County. Compliance with state and Federal law is achieved through inspections, permits, monitoring, and oversight of the installation and removal of UST's as required by the California Health and Safety Code and California Code of Regulations. Fuels contained in underground tanks have the potential to contaminate soil and groundwater if spilled or leaked into the environment. The Amador County Environmental Health Department oversees the initial investigation of unauthorized releases from underground tanks. At sites where groundwater has been impacted the lead agency for the cleanup is the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board. The goal of this program is to protect public health and safety and the environment through the protection of surrounding soil and ground water in Amador County.
