What are USTs Used For?

Underground Storage Tanks are used to store a variety of products, usually petroleum based, by numerous agencies and industries.  Some of the products stored may include gasoline, kerosene, heating oil, jet fuel, diesel, hydraulic oil, propane, and used oil, just to name a few.  Because USTs are federally and state regulated, they must be properly installed by licensed and certified contractors.

Potential Issues with USTs

With more than half a million USTs in America storing potentially hazardous substances, the most worrisome issue is leakage into groundwater.  Owners and operators must follow regulations to protect USTs from such things as corrosion, overfills, and spills.  When a leak is discovered the UST must be cleaned up and the groundwater protected and restored.  H2 Environmental Consulting Services is equipped to provide information and remediation services to companies that own or operate USTs.  Whether you need your UST system managed, tested, monitored, or excavated and removed, we have the knowledge and expertise necessary to do the job right.  We follow all regulations and use state of the art equipment.
