ABOVEGROUND STORAGE TANKS (AST)

In the state of California any significant release or threatening release of hazardous material requires immediate reporting to CUPA. As of 2008 CUPA implemented the Aboveground Petroleum Storage Act (APSA) that regulates facilities with above ground storage tanks with capacities of 55 gallons or more.
