DEQ and Flathead County School District Agree to Resolve Underground Storage Tank Act Violations

Tuesday, July 21, 2015/Categories: Department of Environmental Quality/Tags:

Helena — The Montana Department of Environmental Quality announced that Flathead County School District 1 has agreed to resolve violations of the Montana Underground Storage Tank Act that occurred at the West Valley School in Kalispell.

District 1 failed to conduct a compliance inspection in a timely manner, and failed to perform a line tightness test, or other appropriate monthly monitoring method, on lines under suction.   Shasta Steinweden of DEQ’s Enforcement Division explained that by not performing a line tightness test or monthly monitoring method, an owner or operator may not know if the line develops a leak.           

District 1 has agreed to test the suction line, obtain a reinspection, and pay a $210 penalty.

For questions concerning the Underground Storage Tank Program and laws, please contact the Waste and Underground Storage Tank Bureau at (406) 444-5300 or visit DEQ’s website at: www.deq.mt.gov
