Services / Environmental / Underground Storage Tanks (UST)

If you are involved with commercial real estate in some capacity, you should be concerned about underground storage tanks. USTs are a common source of potential liability, and more than half the documented cases of soil and groundwater contamination in the U.S. have been associated with a release from a UST system.

GEC provides comprehensive underground storage tank consulting services, from compliance and closures to corrective action and active remediation. GEC personnel have been involved with hundreds of UST-related projects throughout the Southeast, from single 100-gallon waste oil tanks to aviation fueling complexes with multiple 10,000+ gallon units.

We provide consulting for property acquisitions, closures, litigation, Trust Fund eligibility, and a vast array of other UST-related issues.

We can also perform these services:

  • Property Transaction Environmental Studies related to UST's
  • Compliance Evaluations

UST management is complex, and involves regulations on both the federal and state levels.
