The South Carolina General Assembly has directed DHEC, through enactment of the SUPERB Act of 1988, to collect an annual registration fee for regulated underground storage tank (UST) systems. Law requires payment of the fee.
The SUPERB Act requires the owner or operator of the UST system to display the registration certificate in the office or kiosk of the facility where the USTs are registered.
If any of the USTs are sold or permanently closed (removed from the ground or filled in place with a solid, inert material) before July 1, provide a written correction (with a closure date or a signed copy of the bill of sale) to the Bureau of Land and Waste Management, Underground Storage Tank Management Division, 2600 Bull Street, Columbia, SC 29201.
It is a violation of the SUPERB Act for any person to place a regulated substance into, or for an owner or operator to cause a regulated substance to be placed into, an UST system for which the owner or operator does not hold a currently valid registration. Deliveries made to any tank without a currently valid registration could lead to civil penalties for both the tank owner and the delivery company.
