Public concern over the environmental and health risks posed by underground storage tank (UST) systems has given rise to myriad codes, standards, and regulations in recent years. In many states, UST owners, operators, contractors, and inspectors must prove that they understand how to apply a vast and growing body of technical and legal specifications to their work.

Technology of Underground Liquid Storage Tank Systems is based on John Hartmann's celebrated training course at the University of Wisconsin-Madison—the longest-running, most well-attended course of its kind. It was written for busy engineers, contractors, owner/operators, and inspectors who need to come up to speed on both the technology and the regulatory requirements involved in designing, installing, and closing USTs.

This complete, practical guide covers all the bases, from site assessment to damage control, regulatory compliance and legal considerations to project management. Drawing upon his 35 years of experience as a UST contractor and consultant, as well as the experience of several other leading experts in the field, Mr. Hartmann provides careful, step-by-step guidance and a gold mine of practical advice on how to avoid most technical and legal snags commonly encountered in building, maintaining, or removing USTs.

    One-Stop Reference Manual

    This is without question one of the finest books written about the topic of underground storage tanks (USTs). I've worked in this industry for more than twelve years for a major petroleum marketer. All of my experience is with the management of UST systems at petroleum retail facilities. The author gathers a wealth of information about USTs together into a very readable format. Everyone involved with any management aspects of UST systems should keep a copy of this book close by for reference. The author's knowledge of this topic is extensive - it is both practical and theoretical - a rare combination in this day and age.
