Why is periodic secondary containment testing required?

 The purpose of secondary containment testing is to determine whether the secondary
 containment system is capable of containing a release from the primary containment
 until the release is detected and cleaned up. [Health & Saf. Code, § 25284.1, subd. (a)(4)(B).]

   How should secondary containment systems be tested?

 Secondary containment systems must be tested using a procedure to demonstrate that
 the system performs at least as well as it did when it was installed. [Cal Code Regs., tit. 23,
 § 2637, subd. (a)(2).]
