EPA Compliance for Underground Storage Tanks
The 1998 Federal EPA Upgrade Compliance deadline for existing underground storage tank systems has renewed interest in the problem of leaking tanks. The requirement that unprotected steel tank systems be replaced or upgraded is a common feature of federal, state and local government regulations.
Those responsible for underground tanks can benefit from the experience of major oil companies who have had tank management programs in place for nearly two decades. These companies have discovered that the cost of such a program can vary tremendously depending on the approach taken.
Corrpro and Warren Rogers Associates (WRA) joined forces over a decade ago to provide the most cost-effective tank integrity assessment technology called MTCF™ which has been implemented on a nationwide basis for major gasoline retailers including Chevron-USA, Texaco, Getty and Southland (7-Eleven). Corrpro/WRA's joint experience in evaluating more than 70,000 tanks at some 22,000 sites in North America cannot be duplicated.
