The average cleanup cost after contamination has been found at a petroleum storage tank facility is approximately $130,000. If a petroleum release impacts groundwater, the cleanup costs can balloon up to over $1 Million. Fortunately, owners and operators aren’t powerless to stop a release, spill, or overfill from occurring. Implementing and upholding a preventative maintenance program is key, as are frequent loss control inspections.
