Underground Storage Tanks (USTs)are often used on large properties, such as farms and home builders. These tanks are often hidden from view with only a pipe visible above ground to let out any gas that accumulates in the tank once it has reached its full capacity.
The dangers of underground storage tanks are mainly from the contents of the tanks, such as chemicals or gasoline. These substances can contaminate groundwater and soil life when released into them either by leaks in the tank’s lining or through pipe cracks.
HazardHub has created the first national Underground Storage Tank database with more than 2,000,000 tanks across more than 600,000 locations. HazardHub can tell you the nearest known tank, as well as the number of tanks within 1/4 mile, 1/2 mile, and 1 mile from any location in the US.
