KDHE Extends
UST Operating 
Permits 
Under 
Certain Circumstances 

Fuel True has been working with KDHE on the backlog of UST Operating Permits. Today, we received the below letter officially extending the deadline for UST Operating Permits. You should receive this letter through KEIMS as well. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call the staff at Fuel True. 

Hello UST Owners and Operators,

Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) will give UST operating permit extensions for the 2022-2023 permit cycle that starts August 1, 2022.  The  operating permit can be given “Extended” status at the beginning of the new permit cycle (August 1st) if:

  • The UST owner has an “In Effect” 2021-2022 permit through the end of July 2022
  • The UST owner has submitted all the required permit renewal documents
  • The renewal submission has an “In process” status
  • The UST owner has submitted the appropriate fees associated with their facility for the new permit cycle.

Thank you if you have already sent us your renewal application and permitting documents. You do not need to resubmit the renewal information.  When the permit is processed by KDHE, the permit status will automatically change to “In Effect” within the KEIMS database. Permits can be viewed and printed in the Documents tab per facility.

Extensions given are only good until December 31, 2022, and if the proper testing requirements and documents are not submitted to KDHE by this time the permit will convert to “Expired” status and operations of the system will need to cease.  If fuel supplier transporters or account representatives have questions about the status of your site permit, they will need your facility ID number and can check the status of your permit in the following website:  https://keap.kdhe.state.ks.us/BerTanks/

These extensions are being granted in part due to the new federal and state testing requirements for UST systems that went into effect on October 13, 2021.  Do not wait to have this work done.  If these new tests are not already done, contact your UST contractor immediately to have this work completed.  The UST Owner or Operator must document their efforts by providing written proof that a qualified Kansas UST Contractor has been hired to complete the testing, provide the scheduled testing dates to KDHE and/or provide testing results with explanations of parts or equipment being on order.  If you have any questions about this, you can call us at 785-296-8061 or email us at tankinfo@ks.gov.      

Thank you again,

KDHE Preventative Unit Staff

Tank Management Holds
2022 Tank Talks 

Tank Management Services (TMS) will hold its annual "Tank Talks" in the upcoming weeks, where representatives from TMS and KDHE will be presenting.  Topics to be discussed include new testing requirements, service companies' backlog of appointments for testing and lack of parts inventory, walkthrough inspections, KEIMS, 2022 permits, and compliance issues seen in the field.

You can see the complete scheduled of meetings at  www.tankmgmt.com.

The purpose of "Tank Talks" is to provide an opportunity for AST and UST owners/operators to gather new information on storage tanks and hear presentations on compliance.  Tank Talks gives tank owners and operators the opportunity to participate in an open forum with representatives of agencies that regulate ASTs and USTs.

NOTE:  Although these meetings provide beneficial information for UST owners/operators, it DOES NOT take the place of Operator Training for class A/B certification.

These meetings will be held at various locations across the state.  To register, click the following link: TANK TALKS or call the TMS office at 800-530-5683.
