<h3><a name="figure1" id="figure1"></a>Figure 1 PST Release Investigation - Initial Steps</h3>

<img src="/assets/public/remediation/pst_cleanup/images/figure1.jpg" alt="Figure 1 from RG-411 Investigating and Reporting Releases from Petroleum Storage Tanks (PSTs)" style="width: 639; height: 604; align-items: center" />
<p>This flow chart explains the initial steps involved in the  PST release investigation with respect to suspected and confirmed releases. All  suspected releases require a system check. If the system check detects problems,  repair them and perform a site check and proceed to Figure 2. If the system  check detects no problems and no environmental impact is noted, the Release Determination  Report Form (TCEQ-0621) should be submitted as documentation. Confirmed  releases with a known environmental impact and source will proceed to Figure 2.</p>
<h3><a name="figure2" id="figure2"></a>Figure 2 PST Release Investigation - Release Reporting</h3>
<img src="/assets/public/remediation/pst_cleanup/images/figure2.jpg" alt="Figure 2 from RG-411 Investigating and Reporting Releases from Petroleum Storage Tanks (PSTs)" style="width: 589; height: 744"/>
<p>This flow chart describes the reporting process for releases  of known environmental impact.   Environmental Samples collected during the site check are compared to  the <a href="https://www.tceq.texas.gov/remediation/pst_rp/downloads.html">TCEQ Action Levels</a>.  If no detections of the COCs listed on Table 3 are noted, a Release Determination  Report Form (TCEQ-0621) must be submitted. Any detection of TPH in the greater  than C12 carbon range requires PAH analysis. If any detected COCs other than  TPH exceed action levels in soil or tank hold water, or if NAPL is present, a  Release Determination Report Form must be submitted. The release will be assigned  an LPST number and is subject to 30 TAC 334 rules.</p>

<img src="/assets/public/remediation/pst_cleanup/images/figure5.jpg" alt="Figure 5 from RG-411 Investigating and Reporting Releases from Petroleum Storage Tanks (PSTs)" style="width: 544; height: 258" />
<p>Fig. 5 illustrates the tank hold sampling location with  tanks greater than 20 feet in length and water not present. Collect one sample  under fill port and two under tank ends. If fill port is within 3 feet of tank  end, sample from the middle under the tank instead.</p>
<h3><a name="figure6" id="figure6">Figure </a>6.   Tank Hold Sampling Locations:   Water Present (Cross Section)</h3>
<img src="/assets/public/remediation/pst_cleanup/images/figure6.jpg" alt="Figure 6 from RG-411 Investigating and Reporting Releases from Petroleum Storage Tanks (PSTs)" style="width: 558; height: 190" />
<p>Fig. 6 illustrates the cross section view of the tank hold  sampling location with water present. Collect samples immediately above  soil-water interface, two samples on each end if tank hold has single tank less  than 10 feet in length, or four samples if the tank hold has multiple tanks or  a single tank greater than 10 feet in length.</p>
<h3><a name="figure7" id="figure7">Figure </a>7.   Tank Hold Sampling Locations:   Water Present (Plan View)</h3>
<img src="/assets/public/remediation/pst_cleanup/images/figure7.jpg" alt="Figure 7 from RG-411 Investigating and Reporting Releases from Petroleum Storage Tanks (PSTs)" style="width: 464; height: 291" />
<p>Fig. 7 illustrates the plan view of the tank hold sampling  location with water present.</p>
<h3><a name="figure8" id="figure8">Figure </a>8.   Pipe Trench Sampling Location (Cross Section)</h3>

<p>This flow chart describes the analytical requirements to be  considered during release reporting. When COCs exceed action levels, an LPST  number will be assigned. When COCs are not detected or detected less than action  levels and the SDLs are less than action levels, submit the laboratory data  package documenting that all detections and non detections are less than action  levels. If COCs are not detected but SDLs are greater than the action levels,  request the lab to lower the SDLs.  If  unable to lower SDLs, resample and reanalyze, or consider the COC detected at  that SDL.</p>
