EPA's Office of Underground Storage Tanks (OUST) is now expanding its national program strategy to include a greater role for the private sector in bringing about the conditions under which good tank management is common business practice. OUST prepared this document to explain how states can use third-party service providers to increase their program's productivity without long-term increases in staffing or spending. The information presented is the result of a collaborative effort between OUST, Pennsylvania's Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP), and Massachusetts' Department of Environmental Protection (MADEP). The document contains four parts followed by appendixes containing Pennsylvania and Massachusettes regulations, forms, and related information. Part 1 introduces initial concepts that states need to think about. Part 2 provides guidance on designing and running a third-party UST inspector program, based on Pennsylvania's experience. Part 3 provides guidance on designing and running a program in which third-party service providers oversee lower priority LUST cleanups, based on Massachusetts' experience. Part 4 summarizes the challenges facing state programs and reiterates how third-party programs can extend state capability.
