Field applications of three alternate technologies for assessing the suitability of underground storage tanks for upgrading by the addition of cathodic protection were observed and documented. The technologies were applied to five existing underground storage tanks that were slated for removal. Noninvasive statistical modeling, invasive inspection by remote video camera, and invasive internal inspection were applied to each of the tanks. Three vendors applied their individual statistical modeling approaches to assess the suitability of the tanks for upgrading with cathodic protection. One vendor demonstrated remote video camera inspection technology, and another conducted an inte5rnal inspection by entering the tanks. After all of the technology assessments were conducted, the tanks were removed and inspected both externally and internally by non-destructive and destructive means to determine their actual condition. The determinations made using the alternate technologies were then compared to the actual condition of the tanks.
