Underground Storage Tanks (USTs)

20 Years Of Progress Closing LUST Sites

EPA’s presentation depicts progress each state and territory made in closing leaking underground storage tank (LUST) sites over the 20-year period from 2000 to 2020. The maps in the presentation display the percentage of sites closed in 5-year intervals, and shows that as of 2020, 37 states closed over 90 percent of their LUST sites. Addressing the LUST sites remaining to be cleaned up continues to be a high priority for EPA and our state, territorial, and tribal partners.
