Tank, Line and Containment Sump Compliance Testing
A containment sump acts as a barrier between the fuel tank components and the environment, including soil and groundwater. Containment sump leaks are often the result of poor installation or deteriorating components such as the sump, dispenser pan and spill bucket. Regular maintenance of containment sumps and automatic tank gauging (ATG) system alarms are thus needed to identify leaks and make repairs before environmental contamination can occur. Furthermore, testing ensures containment sumps are in compliance with government regulations, and reduces cost by preventing additional loss of fuel.
