This booklet begins with an overview of the federal regulatory requirements for leak detection. Each following section focuses on one leak detection method or the special requirements for piping. This document discusses why the leak detection so important. As of March 1997, almost 330,000 underground storage tanks (USTs) leaks had been confirmed. At sites without leak detection, leaks were discovered late, after contamination had spread, requiring difficult and costly cleanups.
