**PLEASE NOTE**

ASTM test standard E3225-20 does NOT meet the requirements of the New Mexico Petroleum Storage Tank Regulations for testing of spill prevention equipment and containment sumps

ASTM test standard E3225-20, Standard Practice for Performing a Liquid Test of Spill Prevention Equipment and Containment Sumps Used for Interstitial Monitoring of Piping by Visual Examination, does NOT meet federal requirements in 40 CFR 280 and does NOT meet the periodic testing requirements in 20.5 NMAC. The testing procedures in PEI (Petroleum Equipment Institute) 1200 ARE acceptable.

Loans may be available from the State Clean Water Revolving Fund for replacement, removal, or upgrade of storage tanks or remediation of releases. Please go to /construction-programs/clean-water-state-revolving-fund-cwsrf/ for more information. Applications are accepted year-round.
