Underground Storage Tanks Program


Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) in Contra Costa County are used for the storage of many substances that may be considered as hazardous. The majority of these USTs contain petroleum products. The Contra Costa Health Services Hazardous Materials Programs (CCHSHM) is the designated local agency assigned to implement the program to protect the public health from exposure to hazardous materials stored in the USTs, including the protection of groundwater from contamination. Activities to obtain these objectives include annual inspections and the issuance of operating permits, which are also issued for UST system installation, removals, upgrades, and repairs. CCHSHM personnel witness specified phases of the work being conducted on the UST system to ensure that the work is conforming to plans approved by the CCHSHM.
