LUST Recovery Act One Year Anniversary Stories (As Of February 2010)
In February 2009, Congress passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which provided EPA with $200 million to assess and clean up releases of contamination from federally-regulated underground storage tanks. Since that time, EPA and our state, territorial, and tribal partners have been using leaking underground storage tank (LUST) Recovery Act money to address underground storage tank releases. Below are links to several one year anniversary stories, listed alphabetically by state, that show how LUST Recovery Act money is protecting our environment and providing economic benefits to communities all across America.
