This document constitutes a model manual that the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has prepared to assist states in adopting an Environmental Results Program (ERP) where they choose to do so. EPA has based this model manual on its federal underground storage tank regulations that appear in 40 C.F.R. Part 280. States that choose to participate in ERP (either as a voluntary or mandatory program for their regulated community) and wish to use this model manual may need to revise it, as appropriate, to reflect their state underground storage tank regulations. EPA has written this model manual in a format that serves as a sample for states to use in developing their own manual. The language, structure, and organization of the manual provide one example of how a state manual might read. Depending on actual requirements under state law, states may need to revise the language and structure of this sample document. For the convenience of the states in referring to this model manual, EPA has written this document in a format that uses sample language directed to members of the regulated community. EPA has also written this document in such a manner that assumes a states adoption of an ERP. Therefore, this model manual will only be relevant to those states that have chosen to adopt, implement or require an ERP in their state and are now interested in preparing their own state ERP manual by using the EPA manual as a model.

This model workbook is a tool to help state underground storage tank (UST) programs and state funds improve owner and operator compliance with UST regulations. States may need to modify the model workbook to reflect their own state laws. States may then request or require tank owners and operators follow the final, state-specific environmental results program (ERP) workbook, which can help owners remain in or achieve compliance with UST requirements. The primary audience for the workbook is UST owners and operators who either volunteer or are required to use the workbook to determine whether or not their facilities comply with UST requirements. The 164-page workbook contains general information about ERP; instructions on how to use the workbook; regulatory requirements, best management practices, and compliance checklists for USTs; and draft forms and worksheets in the appendices.
