As of 2015, the U.S. EPA regulates over one-half million underground storage tanks (USTs) that contain petroleum or hazardous substances. EPA’s Office of Underground Storage Tanks was formed in response to the discovery in the early 1980s that thousands of USTs had leaked and contaminated groundwater supplies in the United States. While the number of annual releases since that time has gone down significantly, releases of petroleum from USTs into the environment are still a significant concern today. This course presents the EPA’s 1988 UST regulations plus the 2015 updates to those regulations that owners/operators of sites with USTs must use to detect and prevent releases.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
