Clarifiers

  • Cal EPA has provided guidance that clarifiers are not APSA exempt. Alternatively, the LA County Fire website contained the following on December 17, 2013  “…below grade clarifiers are not above ground storage tanks or containers. Clarifiers do not meet the definition of a UST or an AST and therefore are not regulated as a UST or an AST.” Links were available in December 2013 to each of these references but information was removed by regulators when checked again in February 2014.
