Research for leak detection at underground storage tank systems (USTs) is being carried out at two Offices of Research and Development (ORD) laboratories within EPA's organization. The Edison, New Jersey lab -- the Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory -- focuses its attention on internal detection methods. Its primary objective to date has been to determine the performance capabilities of volumetric tank testing devices in terms of probability of detection and probability of false alarm. The Las Vegas, Nevada lab -- the Environmental Monitoring Systems Laboratory -- addresses external detection devices. The work has thus far consisted of the development of test methods to enable manufacturers of external monitoring devices to determine the performance of their equipment in terms of specificity, accuracy, response time, detection limits, drift, and interferences. Results of EPA research efforts have contributed to the development of the Technical Standards for UST regulations, enacted in September 1988.
