"An underground storage tank (UST) system is a tank and any underground piping connected to the tank that has at least 10 percent of its combined volume underground. The Office of Land Quality (OLQ) does not regulate every type of storage tank. OLQ regulations apply only to UST systems that store petroleum or certain hazardous substances. OLQ helps UST owners and operators understand the regulations in order to encourage and promote voluntary compliance."
"The Underground Storage Tank (UST) program is responsible for registering all regulated underground storage tanks and assures that all regulated underground storage tanks meet Indiana's requirements for release detection, spill and overflow prevention and corrosion protection, and to insure that tanks not meeting those requirements are properly closed. The UST program also assures that these protection systems are operated and maintained properly."
"Report Leaks or Suspected Leaks - If you suspect that a tank is leaking, or you notice indicators that suggest it, please contact IDEM ( https://www.in.gov/idem/tanks/2337.htm ) within 24 hours of discovery and submit State Form 54487, LUST Initial Incident Report on the IDEM Forms page - https://www.in.gov/idem/5157.htm#olq_ust
