How to register for Groundwater Monitoring inspection
Under Clause 21(1a) of the UPSS Regulation/2008 it’s require the groundwater in each monitoring well to be tested for the presence of hydrocarbons every six months, also a copy of test records must be kept for at least seven years after the date the tests occurred. If it is determined that there are free-phase hydrocarbons on the site or it is likely that offsite migration of hydrocarbons is occurring or has occurred, the appropriate regulatory authority (ARA) must be notified using the UPSS Regulation leak notification form and all necessary corrective action should be taken to identify and remove the source (stop the leak or spill) and remediate both soil and groundwater as necessary. The early detection of leaks is likely to reduce the cost of remediation significantly.
