When an Underground Storage Tanks (UST) leaks, this can cause environmental damage as contents seep into surrounding soil and groundwater or escape during removal.
If a release occurs, it is known as a Leaking Underground Storage Tanks (LUST) Incident and must be filed with the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA). Subsequently, LUST cleanup and closure are required by law. Failure to comply with state regulations will result in fines and penalties.
The good news is most states maintain their own LUST fund for reimbursement of cleanup. Gabriel can help you cut through the red tape and expedite reimbursement.
