The Department of Health (DOH) is seeking delegation of its
underground storage tank program from the federal government. As part
of the delegation process, DOH has adopted new State underground
storage tank rules found in the Hawaii Administrative Rules. The
adoption was effective January 28, 2000.
Paper copies of the official version of the rules may be obtained
from the Underground Storage Tank Section of DOH at 586-4226 with the
- 1st copy free
- Additional copies are $5.00 each
An unofficial version of the new rules may be downloaded by clicking
on the link below. This version has the same text as the official
version but lacks the effective date stamps and the Governor's
signature. There are also slight differences in format. This unofficial
version is also available on 3.5" diskette for $3.00.
The State UST rules may not be copied or used for other than their
intended purpose and may not be altered in any way.
