Abstract : The Department of the Army owns approximately 10,000 underground storage tanks (USTs), many of which are old and may be leaking. Under Public Law 94-580, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976, Section 9002, installations owning tanks were required to collect and report data on them by May 1986. USA-CERL has created data based structures, using the dBASE III PLUS software package and microcomputer, which allow this data to be stored, organized, and manipulated. One of the outputs is a Leak Potential Index, to prioritize USTs in order of potential for leakage. This report documents the data bases that were developed. In addition, an appendix provides a short introduction to dBASE III PLUS for the novice user. Keywords: Management information systems, Data management.
