Will provide efficient training delivery for UST
personnel

At full capacity, Kentucky’s 10,464 active regulated petroleum underground storage tanks can hold nearly 87 million gallons of product – gasoline, diesel, and related fuels. As you can imagine, a certain level of know-how, monitoring and upkeep is required to prevent as many leaks as possible. That is why all of these tanks will soon have state-trained designated compliance managers.

The Kentucky Underground Storage Tank Program will introduce a new online training system to a select group of UST designated compliance managers in a seminar to be jointly offered by the agency and the Kentucky Petroleum Marketers Association.

Underground Storage Tank Cleanup – Changes Lead to Program Success

Through cleanup, former underground storage tank (UST) sites become assets to their communities. Vacant UST properties in cities and towns are often on busy street corners and main thoroughfares, making them potential opportunities for economic development, community development, and neighborhood revitalization.

In working with the UST program and the resources provided through it, cleanup has taken place and new businesses, public facilities and recreational areas have been developed on the sites where unused gas pumps, old canopies and vacant building once stood.

For example: The owner of this UST site (see right) in Morehead, Ky., transformed this property into a new credit union. See the full story in a past issue of the UST Program newsletter, the UST Quarterly (Volume 1, Issue 3).

“Underground storage tank (UST) cleanups benefit the Commonwealth by protecting public health and preserving the natural resource quality and diversity that make Kentucky a great place to live, work and play,” said Len Peters, secretary of the Energy and Environment Cabinet. “As added benefits, UST cleanups improve property value and remove obstacles to redevelopment.”

Kentucky is fortunate to have Continue reading “Underground Storage Tank Cleanup – Changes Lead to Program Success”
