EPA’s Wildfire Guide: Preparation And Recovery For Underground And Aboveground Storage Tank Systems is now available on the underground storage tank (UST) website at www.epa.gov/ust/wildfire-guide-preparation-and-recovery-underground-and-aboveground-storage-tank-systems. The wildfire guide provides information and resources for both UST and ASTs storing oil because many UST facilities also include aboveground storage tank (AST) systems. Information in the guide may help UST and oil AST owners and operators prepare for and respond to the catastrophic effects and environmental harm that may occur as a result of partial or fully burned UST systems or oil ASTs and associated piping and appurtenances. State, local, and tribal UST and oil AST program implementers may also find this guide useful. 


The guide was developed by a workgroup comprised of numerous experts who brought a broad range of wildfire prevention and recovery knowledge to this effort.
