Underground Storage Tank (UST) System Inspection Checklist app is used by owners and operators of underground storage tanks (USTs) for performing a daily inspection. UST Systems require regular inspection and maintenance, and a daily inspection ensures that the UST system does not have glaring problems that may compromise the USE system. This Daily UST System Inspection Checklist provides an easy to use form that a UST Operator or owner can use to evaluate the state of a UST each day. The form checks leak detection equipment including automatic tank gauges, interstitial monitoring, manual inventory control, automatic link leak detectors, soil vapor monitoring, and groundwater monitoring. An owner of UST should have a UST program in place that includes a checklist such as this one, along with corrective actions that can be undertaken. Use of this daily checklist and any corrective actions should be covered in operator training. Leak detection is important to ensure hazardous materials don't leak into the environment - for example, fuel storage tank underground that has corrosion on the pipes or the tank itself is subject to leaking, and contaminating water sources.
