(a) The owner of an underground storage tank system shall designate the primary operator of the underground storage tank system. The person designated shall be the underground storage tank operator, as defined in 40 Code of Federal Regulations Part 280 (July 1, 2009 Edition), or an employee or agent of the underground storage tank operator. There shall be a designated primary operator of the underground storage tank system at all times, until the underground storage tank system has been permanently closed. If the owner fails to designate a primary operator, the owner shall be deemed to be the primary operator of the underground storage tank system for purposes of this Part.
(b) The primary operator shall designate one or more emergency response operators who are employees or agents of the primary operator and shall be on call to respond to emergencies or alarms at the facility. If an emergency response operator is not present at the facility at all times during which a regulated substance is being withdrawn from, or is capable of being withdrawn from, the underground storage tank system, the facility shall have an automated notification system in place that will alert the emergency response operator of an emergency or activated alarm at the facility. If the primary operator fails to designate one or more emergency response operators, the primary operator shall be deemed to be the emergency response operator of the underground storage tank system.
(c) A person may act as both the primary operator and the emergency response operator of the underground storage tank system.
