On May 19, 2020, the State Water Resources Control Board approved amendments to the California Code of Regulations, Title 23, Division 3, Chapter 16 (UST Regulations). The effective date of the amendments is October 1, 2020.

Section 2716 has been modified to require the UST owner or operator to sign the designated operator visual inspection report within 72 hours of receipt, acknowledging the inspection results.
