Final TGD: Minor Revision

DEP ID: 263-4200-002. Title: Guidelines for the Evaluation of Underground Storage Tank Cathodic Protection Systems. Description: Regulated underground storage tank systems (USTs) are required by the Storage Tank and Spill Prevention Act (35 P.S. §§ 6021.101—6021.2104) and related regulations to be protected from corrosion. Regulated USTs that utilize cathodic protection to prevent corrosion must have the cathodic protection evaluated at a minimum every 3 years. This TGD establishes guidelines regarding the evaluation of cathodic protection systems operating on USTs in this Commonwealth to promote submission of consistent and complete reports. This TGD is being revised to reflect amendments to 25 Pa. Code Chapter 245 (relating to administration of the Storage Tank and Spill Prevention Program) that went into effect on December 22, 2018. These amendments require the use of the UST Cathodic Protection System Evaluation Form (2630-FM-BECB0610) when documenting cathodic protection evaluations. Minor editorial changes were also made.

Contact: Questions regarding this TGD can be directed to Alex Eckman at or (717) 772-5827.

Effective Date: June 29, 2019
