Effective May 4, 2014, Rule 391-3-1-.02(2)(zz), "Gasoline Dispensing Facilities – Stage II" has been amended to remove the requirement for Gasoline Dispensing Facilities to install Stage II vapor controls. Due to federal vehicle requirements, Stage II no longer provides an environmental benefit.

Subparagraph (2)(zz)21. is added to require Decommissioning of Stage II Vapor Recovery Systems between May 1, 2014, and April 30, 2016, and to specify the procedures for decommissioning.
