Storage Tanks

From Cure to Compliance

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Underground Storage Tanks (UST) Program has been in place for over 20 years, and in that time 1.7 million aging tanks have been closed, 300,000 of these having contributed actively to contamination of the subsurface environment. It is estimated that over 25,000 old, leaking tanks have yet to be removed, and over 600,000 active USTs remain under EPA jurisdiction, for which clean-up, operational compliance, and system upgrades continue to be critical concerns.

Apex Companies’ team of professionals can help with all aspects of UST and aboveground storage tank (AST) management:

  • Compliance testing
  • Installation, removal, and replacement
  • Release investigation and spill prevention planning
  • Remediation
  • Design and permitting
  • Integrity testing and fit-for-service evaluations
  • STI–SP001 certified inspectors
