Upcoming Webinars


New AC Tank Inspection Standards Are Now in Effect
Date: Wednesday, May 16, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EDT
Speaker: Bernard Bigham, President, Chesapeake Environmental Group, Inc.

As part of EPA's Oil Spill Prevention Rule (SPCC), owners/operators of facilities with tanks containing petroleum liquids like fuel and asphalt cement (AC) must have a tank inspection program. One of the amendments to the rule requires periodic inspections and/or integrity testing of all AST's holding petroleum oil, including AC tanks. In 2016, EPA requested NAPA to work with the Steel Tank Institute (STI) to develop a consensus-based tank inspection standard for thermoplastic materials like AC which has now been incorporated into STI's SP-001 tank inspection standard and will be published in 2018.

Key Takeaways:

  • Review EPS's SPCC rule as it relates to tank inspections.
  • Recognize differences between NAPA's IS-137 and STI's SP-001 for inspection of AC tanks.
  • Understand the specific requirements associated with an AC tank inspection program under SP-001.
  • Identify how to set-up a compliant AC tank inspection program under the SPCC rule.

Performance Under Pressure: Heavy Duty Pavements – Perpetual Pavements
Date: Wednesday, May 30, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EDT
Speaker: Dr. David H. Timm, P.E., Professor of Civil Engineering, Auburn University

Pavements subject to extreme loading conditions can require increased pavement thicknesses. With the requirement for thicker cross section pavements, heavy duty pavements often are great candidates for employing a perpetual pavement or a long life pavement design. A perpetual pavement design solution can also provide an attractive solution for heavy duty pavements due to the increased service life in critical corridors where user delay is costly.  

Key Takeaways:

  • Fundamentals of perpetual pavement design
  • Design tools for perpetual pavements
  • Real-world examples of perpetual pavements
