The first four steps in any implementation plan have already been taken in Maryland, by distributing the various documents that precede this one, and by soliciting public comment on them (at the seminars held in 10/83). These comments were made a part of the next press run of the documents. The next step, according to the Recommendations is to develop a data base to document spills from hazardous materials storage tanks. This should include: an inventory of hazardous materials storage tanks in the State; a listing of the storage tank types, materials of construction, volumes and contents; a description of each tank's appurtenances; detailed accounts of past spills from storage tanks; secondary containment systems employed and operation and maintenance procedures utilized. Following a comprehensive evaluation of the data, and a determination whether or not an additional level of governmental regulation is needed, the State must decide upon appropriate continuing options, which could include, no further regulatory action; a mandatory self-monitoring system; a voluntary program, with incentives to encourage compliance; a fully mandatory compliance program and combinations of any of these measures.
