Missouri Risk-Based Corrective Action Process for Petroleum Storage Tanks
June 3, 2011: The department issued an errata notice pertaining to the April 2005 version of Table 4-1, Soil Concentration Levels to Determine the Need for Groundwater Evaluation During Tank Closure, of the RBCA guidance. The notice concerns incorrect target levels in the table pertaining to TPH-GRO, TPH-DRO, C6-C8 Aliphatics, C8-C10 Aliphatics, C10-C12 Aliphatics and C12-C16 Aliphatics.
Dec. 10, 2010: The department held a meeting/webinar to explain the tanks RBCA process and solicit participation for a stakeholder group that will help develop the tanks RBCA rules.
Nov. 6, 2009: The department issued an errata notice pertaining to Appendix D of the January 2004 guidance. The notice concerns an incorrect conversion factor in the Appendix.
Missouri Risk-Based Corrective Action, or MRBCA workshop – The Missouri Department of Natural Resources held an MRBCA workshop in Jefferson City on Oct. 9. The workshop covered the content and structure of the current Risk-Based Corrective Action rulemaking efforts and the revisions to the Tanks Risk-Based Corrective Action guidance document. The agenda, handouts, presentations, a Q-and-A document and a link to the draft rules are available on the workshop Web page. For more information, visit the departmental MRBCA Web page.
The technical guidance currently in place and which will remain in place until the department's RBCA rules are effective is posted below.

Note: When opening the Tier 1 - 2 Excel files, a series of dialogues will be presented.
Click OK if "missing file" warnings appear, there are no missing files
Click Enable Macros when given the option. Several functions of the forms use macros.
Click No when asked to update links, there are no external links to update.
Note: The risk-based target levels that appear on forms Tier 1-12(1) through Tier 1-12(10) are not current and, therefore, the forms should not be used as part of a risk assessment report. Alternatively, forms Tier 2-2(1) through Tier 2-2(10) or a table or spreadsheet of your own construction may be used for Tier 1 reporting. To use the Tier 2-2 forms at Tier 1, enter both a representative concentration and a current, soil type dependent risk-based target level on the forms. Cross through the form number in the upper right corner and write in the corresponding Tier 1 form number (e.g., Tier 1-12(1)).
