The Petroleum Storage Tanks (PST) program originally had its own investigation requirements and cleanup standards, and these were sometimes different than for other environmental program areas.

Since 2003, new releases from underground tanks are first investigated under updated the Petroleum Storage Tanks (PST) program protocols to determine if an actual release has occurred, but additional investigations and any clean up are in accordance with TRRP requirements.
