Regulatory Advisory for Enhanced Vapor Recovery (EVR) on Aboveground Storage Tanks (AST)
The Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) staff has issued a Regulatory Advisory related to the upcoming deadline for existing Aboveground Storage Tanks (AST) to upgrade to Phase I Enhanced Vapor Recovery (EVR). The Regulatory Advisory will provide relief from Phase I EVR requirements for many ASTs. Staff has also developed a list of answers to frequently asked questions about the AST EVR Regulatory Advisory.
