    4th Qtr. 2023  

    From the Desk of TMS’s CEO - Reggie Roberson

    Check out our new & improved website that will be updated regularly. Keep referring to it for the latest TMS info.

    Below are the 2023 TMS inspection results. There were 28 sites with no violations. Congrats! There are a lot of small things that can be quickly repaired and need to be.

    We recently met with KDHE staff, and they had some really good things to report but obviously still struggling with staffing. We are happy to be having regular meetings and working with KDHE staff to be part of the solution.

                 All of us here at TMS wish you a Happy Holiday Season !!              We appreciate you giving TMS the chance to be your trusted partner.

    Current TMS Staff Contacts:

    KDHE Preventative Unit Gives Update on UST Permits

    For the current operating permit cycle (2023-2024), the Storage Tank staff have reviewed and vetted all permitting and compliance information submitted by UST owners. All documentation submitted by the tank owners has been accounted for and the online database (KEIMS) contains up to date information relevant to submitted documents. At this time, permits have been issued to all UST owners who have submitted the correct documents and fees. Those facilities that are operating under ‘Extended’ status permits will need to provide any missing information to KDHE as soon as possible in order to avoid late fees. Those facilities that are operating under an ‘Expired’ permit will begin receiving the ‘B-6’ letters instructing their fuel supplier to cease providing fuel to that facility until a new permit has been issued by KDHE. The regulated community is encouraged to achieve compliance with State and Federal storage tank requirements.

    KDHE has once again participated in the Tank Talks recently held around the state. A copy of that information will be posted on our website after the February 7th, 2024 Tank Talks is held in Mulvane, KS.
