NEIWPCC Breaks Webinar Attendance Record

Posted on Tuesday, May 12th, 2020 | Posted in News

More than 600 state and tribal underground storage tank (UST) inspectors and other compliance staff attended NEIWPCC’s training webinar held on April 30.

The training focused on UST sumps and spill buckets and covered policy background, equipment testing updates, state licensing requirements for testers, as well as standards and compatibility issues associated with equipment repairs.

USTs are commonly used for storing fuel at gas stations, marinas, and other fueling facilities. Spill buckets and sumps are essential aspects of the UST system that help prevent releases of product into the environment.

Speakers included:

  • Russ Brauksieck, Senior Analyst; Environmental Protection Agency
  • Ed Kubinsky, Director of Regulatory Affairs, Training and Certification; Crompco, LLC
  • Tony Rieck, President/CEO; T.R. Consulting, Inc.
  • Roland Riegel, PDE-Flammable Liquids Containment Products; Underwriters Laboratories Inc.

The two-hour recording is available to watch on demand. An archive of previous UST training webinars is also available.

NEIWPCC has been supporting UST compliance and education for more than 35 years. An additional UST training and two Leaking Underground Storage Tank-related webinar trainings are being planned for later this summer.
