Comprehensive Summary Of Final Senate Bill 373

On Saturday evening, March 8, after intense work and consideration of perhaps 100 or more amendments, the West Virginia Legislature passed Senate Bill 373 ("SB 373"), which establishes sweeping new regulatory programs that will require registration and permitting for aboveground storage tanks ("ASTs") and "potential sources of significant contamination" of public drinking water sources.

The bill also establishes complex planning and reporting requirements for public drinking water utilities for the protection of drinking water sources. Any AST in the state, as defined below, may now be the subject of two new registration programs, two new permitting programs, several new fees, and complex design, maintenance, inspection, planning and reporting requirements. The bill is now awaiting Governor Tomblin's signature.

Please see full summary below for more information.
