Redevelopment Successes at Petroleum Underground Storage Tanks Sites Webpage

Through the years, State programs have evolved to assist our community leaders and developers in decision-making processes related to redevelopment of LUST sites. The LUST Task Force developed this webpage to present information on redevelopment stories that have occurred in States across the country. Updates to this webpage will be prepared periodically.

Lead Scavengers Survey Report

In 2013, the Tanks Subcommittee’s LUST Task Force requested information from all States and Territories to determine what activites the tanks programs are taking to identify and remediate the lead scavengers 1,2-dibromoethane (EDB) and 1,2-dichloroethane (1,2 DCA). Thirty-five States responded and the Task Force found that there continues to be great variation from State to State on how lead scavenger issues are addressed, which is summarized in this report.

Lust Trust Fund Fact Sheet 2014

The Tanks Subcommittee developed the fact sheet to summarize information, guidance, and budget information specific to the LUST Trust Fund. The Trust Fund provides federal funding to support the U.S. EPA’s, States’, Territories, and Tribal LUST prevention and response programs.
NOTE: A typo error in the original release stated that the LUST Trust Fund is financed by a “0.01 tax”. The LUST Trust Fund is financed by a 0.1 cent tax (10x $0.01). The Fact Sheet has been updated to correct this error.

Compendium of Emergency Response Actions at Underground Storage Tank Sites – Version 2

The LUST Task Force developed this compendium to present information on emergency response actions that have occurred in States across the country. UST programs across the country require reporting, initial abatement measures, and free product removal activities to occur immediately upon discovery of a release to protect human health and the environment. Updates to this compendium will be prepared periodically.
