FROM: Denny Carroll, Executive Director

SUBJECT: Annual Spring Leak Test Requirement Suspended for 2020

To Owners or Operations Managers:

Due to the current Covid-19 environment, many organizations have limited the facilities access to their occupancy. For that reason, the Missouri Propane Safety Commission has opted to not require the annual Spring leak test for seasonal and certain public institutions this year. We will resume the leak test reporting next year.

Should you decide you want to go ahead and do the leak tests you can find blank leak test forms on our website, www.mopropanesc.org.

We do plan to continue with the Fall leak tests which are primarily school systems. Those notices will go out in June.

If you have questions, please contact me or Marlene at (573)-893-1073.
