On April 12th, 2018, Crompco will be hosting 2 educational seminars on UST & Air Quality regulations in NJ & NY. There will be an AM seminar from 9:00 – 12:00 and a PM seminar from 1:00 – 4:00. During these 2 sessions, Crompco’s compliance team will be explaining what you need to know about compliance with new UST regulations, new stage I & II regulations and stage II decommissioning for gasoline dispensing facilities in NJ & NY. In addition, we will inform about how we can help you manage data, your tank registrations and air permits. If you own and operate a regulated underground storage tank facility and/or a gasoline dispensing facility in NJ or NY, you will not want to miss this opportunity to learn and ask questions about these upcoming changes and approaching deadlines as well as explore options for helping you manage your environmental responsibilities. You will also be able to talk to our account managers about scheduling work at the event. You must register to attend. Registration is only $40.00 per person. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn what you need to know to stay in compliance and avoid costly fines or penalties!
Crompco has officially calibrated more than 1 million fuel meters, which is far from normal in the industry. Accumeasure was first launched in 2009 leading to this huge jump in meters calibrated. From a single truck to now over 30 crews, 7,000 sites are visited each year. This number is a huge accomplishment for Crompco, and it will continue to grow.

From PEI Tulsa Letter 8/31/17:
As installers, contractors and underground storage tank (UST) owner/operators work to bring retail facilities back online, one of the most valuable resources has been the Underground Storage Tank Flood Guide, produced in 2010 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This 30-page manual provides helpful advice for catastrophic situations in which a UST has floated out of the ground, precautions to protect UST systems before a flood, as well as testing and inspection minimums to help owners and operators restart UST systems impacted by high waters.
“Dear Gasoline Dispensing Site Owner/Operators and Stakeholders,
Please be advised that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has drafted a proposal for regulatory changes to 6 NYCRR Part 230 Gasoline Dispensing Sites and Transport Vehicles. Please find attached a fact sheet outlining the proposed changes.
In addition to updating an obsolete regulation, the proposal adopts federal Stage I regulations that require specific vapor recovery system equipment along with best management practices, submerges fill pipes and CARB vapor recovery performance testing for all gasoline dispensing sites with annual throughputs of 120,000 gallons or greater. The Department’s proposal goes beyond the, already in place, federal regulation by extending these requirements to sites with annual throughputs between 120,000 and 1.2 million gallons. Furthermore, the proposal eliminated Stage II vapor recovery requirements in light of diminishing benefits due to incompatibility with on-board refueling vapor recovery systems (ORVR). It also replaces the gasoline cargo tank pressure test requirements with the latest federal DOT standards. Lastly, individuals who perform Stage I vapor recovery tests will be required to provide proof that they have the expertise to do so.
Please contact me with any questions.
Informational meetings are planned for the near future. You will be notified regarding the locations and times.
If you are no longer interested in being contacted regarding changes to Part 230, please let me know.
Thank you for your interest.
