Three-Year Underground Storage Tank Upgrade Program


Funding for a three-year program to bring its storage tanks into compliance with the requirements of Suffolk County Sanitary Code, Articles 7 and 12 began in 1988. The $1.1 million program was projected to be completed by the end of FY90.

Twenty-three tanks were addressed the first year. Several were replaced with double-walled tanks; the remaining tanks were removed. Underground gasoline storage tanks were addressed in the second year and outdoor aboveground storage tanks were to be upgraded during the third year.
