There are approximately 555,000 underground storage tanks (UST) nationwide that store petroleum or hazardous substances. The greatest potential threat from a leaking tank is contamination of groundwater, the source of drinking water for nearly half of all Americans. Along with the EPA, state organizations work in partnership with industry to protect the environment and human health from potential releases.
At this year’s Environmental Law Forum, we will address what is happening in the world of underground storage tanks from both Tennessee Department of Energy and Conservation’s and Tennessee Fuel and Convenience Store Association’s perspectives. This program will provide the opportunity to hear both viewpoints, along with updates from an interactive panel discussing the future of this ever-changing landscape.
