In order to be considered no less stringent than the corresponding federal requirements
for release reporting, investigation, and confirmation, the state must have requirements
that ensure all owners and operators conform with the following:
(a) Promptly investigate all suspected releases, including:
(1) When unusual operating conditions, release detection signals and environmental conditions
at the site suggest a release of regulated substances may have occurred or the interstitial space may have been compromised; and
(2) When required by the implementing agency to determine the source of a release having
an impact in the surrounding area; and
(b) Promptly report all confirmed underground releases and any spills and overfills that
are not contained and cleaned up.
(c) Ensure that all owners and operators contain and clean up unreported spills and overfills
in a manner that will protect human health and the environment.
