Abstract : Underground storage of petroleum products such as gasoline, diesel oil, fuel oil and aviation fuel can be a significant source of contamination of ground water and soil. Estimates by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indicate that nearly 25% of all steel underground storage tanks (UST) are leaking. The need to initiate remedial measures as soon as leaking is detected is of paramount importance. For any migrating fuel plume problem. The first priority must be to gain control of the migrating product to prevent further soil and ground water contamination. Proper immediate response can significantly reduce the ultimate cleanup cost. Increase the efficiency of the cleanup, and mitigate further environmental damage.
