                                             The function and location of the components will be
                                             described. During the second half of the session a review
                                             of a typical VPH UST installation permit application will be
                                             discussed. Many CUPA inspectors have limited
                                             knowledge of this permit process due to the small number
                                             of new installations being performed. A step by step
                                             review will provide inspectors with the requirements and
                                             conditions required for new tank installation. The permit
                                             application form will also be provided for use if requested.
