Early in the UST program, EPA and State environmental programs recognized the need to facilitate technology transfer among all personnel involved in UST programs nationwide. It has been noted many times at Office of Underground Storage Tanks (OUST) workshops that the level of experience of personnel in the UST programs varies widely. This is generally attributed to the recent development of the UST programs, high turnover within the program staff, and the introduction of new commercial technologies to contend with the large number of UST cleanups. COLIS (Computerized On-Line Information System) was designed and implemented to support some of these pressing program needs.
