 On September 26, 2008, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) issued Approval letter 08-04a that required every gasoline station in California with underground storage tanks to be equipped with Husky Model 5885 pressure/vacuum (P/V) vent valves by May 31, 2012.

What does this mean? It means if you have a Husky 4885 or OPW 623 P/V valve it needs to be replaced with a new certified valve by May 31, 2012. Currently, the Husky 5885 and the Franklin Fueling Systems PV-Zero are the only certified replacement P/V valves for your system and as of June 1st they will be the only ones allowed for use. How can you tell which P/V valve you have? Below are pictures of the Husky 5885 and PV-Zero. The Husky 5885 has a yellow sticker on the side that reads “EVR APPROVED”. If your P/V valve does not look like one of the pictures below, then you need to replace your existing P/V valve by May 31, 2012. Note: You must obtain an Authority to Construct from the District prior to installing an FFS PV-Zero valve.

Husky 5885 or FFS PV-Zero

If you do not have one of the above P/V valves, please contact your gasoline equipment maintenance contractor to have your existing P/V valve replaced. If you have any questions about the information contained in this bulletin, please contact a gasoline vapor recovery staff member at one of the District’s regional offices.
