The latest NACS Convenience Matters podcast looks at tank corrosion
By NACS Online
A 2016 report issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Underground Storage Tanks found that many diesel fuel retailers have experienced excessive corrosion in their systems and that many more may not even know they have a problem.
In the latest NACS Convenience Matters podcast, Carolyn Hoskinson, director of EPA’s Office of Underground Storage Tanks, and Mark Barolo, deputy director of EPA’s Office of Underground Storage Tanks, discuss the agency’s study, new tank regulations and the relationship between EPA and tank owners. EPA’s Office of Underground Storage Tanks is responsible for ensuring that fuel retailers maintain their tank systems to prevent petroleum releases.
In “EPA and Tank Corrosion,” cohosts John Eichberger and Donovan Woods of the Fuels Institute talk to Hoskinson and Barolo about the EPA report on corrosion in diesel storage tanks, underground storage tank regulations and priorities for the tanks program.
