EPA Requirements for Underground Storage Tanks

Many developers, businesses and individuals encounter the opportunity to purchase land that has been previously contaminated by underground storage tanks. EPA's regulations, delegation and direction to state agencies, and direction on remediation is changing. Many of these prospective purchasers are not aware of or do not understand the responsibilities and liabilities that can be associated with such a purchase. Even worse, most businesses and individuals underestimate the amount of time and expense that is required to successfully remediate a property of contamination. Making such tasks even more difficult is the ever-changing body of law regarding underground storage tanks.

Whether you possess property contaminated by USTs or you are interested in purchasing such properties, this OnDemand Webinar will help you recognize the risks, understand the requirements, create the best possible remediation plan, and select the most beneficial remediation program to gain assistance, either financially or procedurally, from government agencies such as the EPA. The OnDemand Webinar also explains the cleanup process from the initial site assessment and characterization of the site to the ultimate goal the receipt of the no-further-remediation letter issued by the EPA.

It is critical for anyone who owns or is considering owning property that has been contaminated by underground storage tanks to order this program.

  • You will be able to review the EPA's role in regulating underground storage tanks.
  • You will be able to identify when you are responsible for cleanup.
  • You will be able to define how to meet UST compliance requirements.
  • You will be able to discuss actual cleanup - methods and costs.
