Specialty Tanks






3. It is the responsibility of the Class B operator to assess conditions for suspected or obvious releases?


4. Situation Analysis: A monitoring system performed a leak test of the tank.   The test result was a fail, indicating a suspected release may exist. However, it is subsequently determined that the monitoring equipment was malfunctioning.   The operator immediately repaired the malfunctioning equipment, and re- ran the leak test.   The result of the re-run leak test was a pass.


True or False: It is not necessary to report the original “failed” test results to the Department of Commerce.


5. If monitoring equipment, which is known to be properly functioning, indicates a FAIL test result for a tank or piping system, then assessing conditions to determine whether a release exists may require the Class B operator to schedule a precision tightness test of the tanks and/or piping.
