Underground Storage Tank
Underground Storage Tanks
Underground Storage Tank (UST) systems and their contents are governed by Federal, State, and sometimes local regulations. These UST systems can be significant sources of contamination when leaks or spillage occur during their operation. UST regulations require UST owners to comply with current upgrade standards, maintain appropriate registration and insurance coverage, install and monitor leak detection systems, and perform periodic maintenance.
The New Jersey UST regulations (NJAC 7:14B Subchapter 13) require that all personnel who install, close, test, and design corrosion protection systems for USTs must be certified. All owners/operators of USTs that are removed or closed in-place after November 4th, 2009 need to retain the services of a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) to conduct subsurface evaluations and remediation.

Peak’s staff is also experienced in the administrative and practical steps necessary to obtain financial aid/reimbursement under New Jersey’s Hazardous Discharge Site Remediation Fund and the Petroleum UST Remediation, Upgrade and Closure Fund. Peak is experienced in the investigation and remediation of discharges from UST systems, and Peak’s staff can provide expert testimony and litigation support, where necessary, to aid in cost recovery efforts associated with discharges from UST systems.
