KWRRI Research Reports
This study was undertaken to address the removal and closure of defective petroleum underground storage tanks in Kentucky. Goals for the study included:
- To address standards for levels of contamination requiring corrective action consistent with accepted scientific and technical principles.
- To recommend a matrix or scoring system to be used for (a) ranking sites as to actual or potential harm to human health and the environment caused by release of petroleum from a petroleum storage tank, and (2) establishing standards and procedures for corrective action that shall adequately protect human health and the environment.
- To address all compounds individually and collectively known as petroleum.
- To produce a report that shall be scientifically defensible.
The study was commissioned by the Petroleum Storage tank Environmental Assurance Fund Commission.
