UST & AST Decommissioning

Storage tanks, both underground (USTs) and aboveground (ASTs) are everywhere and are typically used to store various fluids. Most commonly, these tanks are used to store petroleum products (i.e. gasoline, diesel, refined oils, production fluids, etc.) Generally, typical types of tanks include; Steel/Aluminum, Fiberglass and Concrete. Federal, Provincial and/or Territorial Regulations require that storage tanks meet uniform performance standards to ensure protection of the environment as well as human health. When a tank falls out of compliance or is found to be leaking, the tank needs to be removed and any contaminated soils surrounding the tank as a result of the tank failure needs to be cleaned-up.
