Above Ground Storage Tank (AST) Removal

An above ground storage tank (AST) can be used to store heating oil where underground storage tank (UST) is not desired, practical, or required.  Not frequently, an AST will be used to replace a UST that has begun to leak.  Leaked heating oil from an AST is regulated the same as a leak from a UST i.e. reporting and cleanup requirements are the same.  When a release is detected from an AST, it is required by law to report the leak to NCDEQ within 24 hours and to commence source removal and cleanup.
