The Wyoming Environmental Quality Council (EQC) adopted proposed revisions to Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (WDEQ) Water Quality Division (WQD) Rules and Regulations Docket 18-3101 and Solid and Hazardous Waste Division (SHWD) Storage Tank Program Rules and Regulations Docket 18-5101 at a public hearing held on May 23, 2018, at the Wyoming Game and Fish Building, Elk Room, 5400 Bishop Blvd., Cheyenne, Wyoming.

SHWD, pursuant to the authority vested in it by the Environmental Quality Act, Wyoming Statute (W.S.) § 35-11-1416, has moved Chapter 17 from WQD Rules and Regulations to SHWD, Storage Tank Program - Chapter 1, Storage Tanks.  The Storage Tank Program was moved from the WQD to SHWD during the 2017 legislative session.  The adopted revisions: 1) are in response to changes made to the federal law and meet federal law requirements; 2) update and standards, publications, and references; 3) make editorial, formatting, and technical corrections; 4) provide aboveground storage tank owners and/or operators the option of obtaining financial assurance; and 5) move WQD Chapter 19 (Financial Assurance for Underground Storage Tanks) into this Chapter 1. The final rule was signed by Governor Mead on June 28, 2019 and filed with the Wyoming Secretary of State on June 29, 2018.
