Underground Storage Tank Systems by Kieran J. Purcell, P.E., LEED® AP

59 minute


Rimkus invites you to join Kieran J. Purcell, P.E., Director, Environmental Practice, for a free, one-hour, on-demand webinar, “Underground Storage Tank Systems.” The webinar will be available until December 31, 2022.

Course DescriptionUnderground Storage Tank Systems is a one-hour course designed to educate insurance company participants on typical configurations, operations, and maintenance of service stations from the tanker truck delivery to the facility to the motorist fueling their automobile. Over the years, government agencies have mandated esoteric equipment upgrades and procedures as well as fuel composition changes intended to minimize hydrocarbon spills and emissions into the environment. Insurance coverage is also desired or required in various forms. Unfortunately, these mandates have not eliminated all the potential problems at service stations and, in fact, cause many new problems and resultant insurance claims.

This presentation will illustrate and discuss the various components within the entire fuel system; the common equipment names/acronyms, their purpose, typical operations, routine testing and maintenance, typical/atypical failure modes, and repair/replacement or cleaning practices. Emerging failure modes and related claims such as water intrusions into gasoline or diesel fuel, microbial corrosion in steel tanks, and gasket failures due to ethanol blends in gasoline will be presented. The price of various selected repair or remediation techniques will also be discussed.
