Guidance Update: Management of Underground Petroleum Storage Systems (UPSSs)

Leakage from Underground Petroleum Storage Systems (UPSS) is a significant problem within the petroleum industry. This problem is known to have environmental and safety implications. Improved working practices and a higher level of performance for UPSS are necessary to ensure protection of people, property and the environment.

The Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has recently developed and released a guideline (EPA publication number 888.3) in response to concerns about leakage from UPSS, and the need for clear and comprehensive guidance to owners/operators on the level of performance required for UPSS.

Landserv provide UPSS removal and site validation services conducted by experienced professionals trained in the most up-to-date policy framework and guidance documentation.
