and/or operator of a gasoline-dispensing facility may transfer or allow the
transfer of gasoline into a motor vehicle fuel tank at gasoline-dispensing
facilities located in Clackamas, Multnomah or Washington Counties whose annual
throughput exceeds 600,000 gallons, unless the gasoline-dispensing facility is
equipped with a stage II vapor collection system which must be approved by DEQ
before it is installed.
NOTE: Underground piping requirements are
described in OAR
and 40 CFR 280.20(d). Systems installed according to Petroleum Equipment
Institute Publication RP100, "Recommended Practices for Installation of
Underground Liquid Storage Systems" or American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Standard B31.4 "Pipeline Transportation Systems for Liquid Hydrocarbons and
Other Liquids" are considered approved systems.
Owners and/or operators of
gasoline-dispensing facilities subject to stage II vapor collection
(a) Install all necessary
stage II vapor collection and control systems, and make any modifications
necessary to comply with the requirements;
(b) Provide adequate training and written
instructions to the operator of the affected gasoline-dispensing facility and
the gasoline transport vehicle;
(c) Replace, repair or modify any worn or
ineffective component or design element to ensure the vapor-tight integrity and
efficiency of the stage II vapor collection systems; and
(d) Connect and ensure proper operation of
the stage II vapor collection systems whenever gasoline is being loaded,
unloaded or dispensed.
(3) Approval of a stage II vapor collection
system by DEQ does not relieve the owner and/or operator of the responsibility
to comply with other applicable codes and regulations pertaining to fire
prevention, weights and measures and safety matters.
Regarding installation and testing of
piping for stage II vapor collection systems:
(a) Piping must be installed in accordance
with standards in OAR 340 division 150;
(b) Piping must be installed by a licensed
installation service provider pursuant to OAR 340 division 160; and
(c) Piping must be tested prior to being
placed into operation by an installation or tank tightness testing service
provider licensed pursuant to OAR 340 division 160.
Test methods are based on methods used in
other states with established stage II programs. See DEQ, Operations Division,
for copies of the approved test methods.
