Preventing Releases

The following is provided as general information.

The Petroleum Storage Tank Fund does not assume responsibility or assume the duty for any person or organization to provide for the health or safety of any person or the environment. We do not warrant that conditions are safe or healthful; or comply with laws, regulations, codes, or standards.

Tank owners and operators who assume a proactive approach to managing their tank systems both monitor and maintain their systems to ensure that releases are detected and responded to promptly.

Pollution prevention efforts significantly reduce the risk and costs associated with the release of petroleum products into the environment, helping protect human health, environmental quality, and quality of life.
