STATE GAS STATION OPERATORS GET HELPING HAND FROM DNR WITH 2014 COMPLIANCE CALENDARS

January 22, 2014

MADISON - Gas station operators in Wisconsin can use a handy calendar from the Department of Natural Resources to help them comply with state laws and regulations in 2014.

The agency's 2014 Gas Station Compliance Calendar [PDF] offers several helpful tools for operators, including highlighted regulatory changes, extra space for important record-keeping and fact sheets summarizing regulations.

"The calendar is a great DNR business tool," said Bart Sponseller, director for the department's Air Management Bureau. "It continues to be one of our more popular publications."

Sponseller added that this year's calendar highlights changes to the requirements for stage II vapor recovery operation and decommissioning, and the availability of DNR grant funding for removing stage II systems.

The department will mail the gas station calendars in late January. If operators keep their calendars on file for five years, they can serve as a gas station's official record.

The DNR offers two such compliance calendars - the agency has also published and mailed 2014-2015 calendars to dry cleaner operators. Copies of both calendars can be ordered by contacting the Small Business Environmental Assistance Program at 855-889-3021, or via email at DNRSmallBusiness@wisconsin.gov.
