We don’t have time for failures, therefore we; Superior & Canary will continue to bring in reliable success.
EPA designed part of the technical regulations for underground storage tank (UST) systems to prevent releases from USTs. The regulations require owners and operators to properly install UST systems and protect their USTs from spills, overfills, and corrosion and require correct filling practices to be followed. In addition, owners and operators must report the existence of new UST systems, suspected releases, UST system closures, and keep records of operation and maintenance.
The greatest potential hazard from a leaking UST is that petroleum or other hazardous substances can seep into the soil and contaminate groundwater, the source of drinking water for nearly half of all Americans (USGS 2003). A release from an UST can also present other health and environmental risks, including potential for fire and explosion.
