DEQ Accepting Public Comments on New Underground Storage Tanks in Red Lodge


(Helena) The Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), Underground Storage Tank program, has prepared an Environmental Assessment for a proposed underground storage tank facility. This installation will be at the Town Pump at 615 North Broadway, Red Lodge MT.

This project involves installing three double-walled underground storage tanks and associated piping. The tanks will be used for the storage of gasoline, #1, #2 and red-dyed diesel fuel. System monitoring will be accomplished with internal probes and sensors for all tanks. An automatic tank gauge will shut down the system on any indication of a problem.

The DEQ prepares environmental assessments to inform interested government agencies, public groups, or individuals of a proposed action and to determine whether or not the action may have a significant effect on the human or natural environment.

The Environmental Assessment for this project is published at Public comments will be accepted until July 21, 2012. Comments must be in writing and can be e-mailed to or mailed to DEQ Underground Storage Tank Program at P.O. Box 200901, Helena, MT, 59620-0901. Following the comment period the DEQ will determine what actions to take regarding this permit application.
