The purpose of this document is to assist air pollution agencies in the enforcement of Federal new source performance standards (NSPS) for volatile organic storage tanks. The manual actually serves a twofold purpose in that it outlines the requirements of the regulations and also describes methods for conducting inspections of tanks to verify their compliance with these requirements. The NSPS regulations are applicable to storage tanks of 40,000 gals capacity or greater storing organic material of greater than 0.5 psia true vapor pressure. The standards are written in terms of the type of roof required and the type of records to be kept on file based upon the volatility of the material stored. The various types of tanks are described in the manual so that the inspection officer can recognize which tanks are affected by the standards during an on-site inspection. A checklist is included to be used to gather tank data, and procedures are outlined which allow the inspector to monitor and verify proper performance test conditions.
