Underground Motor Fuel Storage Tanks: A National Survey

Underground Motor Fuel Storage Tanks: A National Survey (EPA 560-5-86-013). May 1986.

You will need Adobe Reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA's PDF page to learn more.

A statistical study producing a national assessment of underground storage tanks systems with information on (1) the number of tanks, (2) the number of establishments with tanks, (3) the number of tank systems that failed a tightness test, and (4) factors associated with leaking. It is limited to motor fuels. (Conducted by EPA's Office of Toxic Substances.)
