UST Upgrade Or Closure: Best Practices For Successful Underground Storage Tank Risk Management
|Date / Time:
The life expectancy of an underground storage tank (UST) is ideally 30 to 40 years; however, due to elements such as corrosion, fuel compatibility, lack of maintenance, tank site and installation, the expected life span can be diminished.
When the time comes to either upgrade or permanently close a UST at your site, you must follow certain upgrade or closing procedures to avoid leaks and injuries. Regardless of what you plan to do, there are several items to take into consideration when deciding to either upgrade or close a UST in order to maintain compliance and remain financially efficient.
Join us for a comprehensive webinar led by storage tank program manager David Piercey, who will discuss compliance standards for UST upgrades or closures and best management practices for the tank closure process.
About Your Presenter:
- UST system upgrading options to consider
- How to tell if a tank needs to be permanently closed either by removal or closure in place
- Strategies and guidelines for safe and compliant closure
- And more
