Nationwide, hundreds of thousands of underground storage tanks (UST) hold petroleum products such as gasoline, diesel, heating oil, kerosene or other hazardous substances that, if released, can cause harm to human health or the environment. Natural corrosion of the steel tanks over time, often compounded by imperfect installations or operation, increases the risk for groundwater contamination. Leaking USTs represent a significant, long-term health hazard to public drinking water. Additionally, vapors from leaking tanks can travel through sewer lines into adjacent buildings, escalating the risk of fire and explosion.
