The UST Section is transitioning to electronic data management in order to enhance customer service,

reports (including, but not limited to, 20-Day Reports, Initial Abatement Action Reports, LSA Reports,

Changes to the tables of approved methods for groundwater analysis in all UST Section corrective action  guidelines (see memo)
Changes have been made to the tables which present the approved methods for groundwater analysis and sample containers/preservation in all of the five UST Section corrective action guidelines, effective from December 1, 2013. The changes were required because sample preparation for analysis of metals (chromium and lead) in groundwater by Standard Method 3030C, “Preliminary Treatment for Acid-Extractable Metals”, is no longer required. The basic preparation requirements of 3030C for determination of total metal concentration in unfiltered samples are incorporated in current analytical methods from sources listed in 15A NCAC 2L .0112 and 2L .0413. The water quality memorandum dated May 13, 2013 describes the current policy developed by the Division of Water Resources for metals determination.
