Contents Notes
"The regulations Issued by the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) In 1988 require, with several exceptions, that the Integrity of underground storage tank (UST) systems containing petroleum fuels and hazardous chemicals be routinely tested. The regulatory standards for leak detection In tanks containing hazardous chemicals are more stringent than for those containing petroleum motor fuels. The report summarized here describes (1) the regulatory standards for leak detection In tanks containing hazardous chemicals, (2) the types of chemicals being stored, (3) the characteristics of the tanks In which these chemicals are stored, (4) the effectiveness of tank tightness tests and automatic tank gauging systems for detection of leaks In tanks containing chemicals other than petroleum, and (5) the approaches to leak detection that are being Implemented by tank owners and operators."
