View Full Publication Here

In 2014, ASTSWMO formed the Aging Tanks Workgroup to examine issues related to aging UST systems and the potential impacts to owners, operators, and State UST programs. The Workgroup’s objective was to analyze whether aging UST infrastructure poses a higher risk of leaks, thus creating higher risks for State tank funds and private insurers and, ultimately, higher costs for tank owners/operators. The final report includes an analysis of UST system data from eight participating States as well as information on potential risk factors of fuel leaks, State policies and initiatives for mitigating risks of aging tanks, and State fund and financial insurance considerations.
