"Particularly with today's newer fuels, poor operations and maintenance procedures for monitoring and removing water from storage tank systems can lead to a number of risks," said Wayne Geyer, executive vice president of STI-SPFA, "from phase separation to fuel quality degradation and damage to the entire storage system."
STI-SPFA's brochure encourages owners and operators to monitor and remove water from their fuel storage tanks in order to maintain quality product and reduce their business risk. The brochure has easy-to-understand text, a clear illustration of where water collects in aboveground tanks, and a list of further resources.
The AST maintenance brochure follows a similar UST maintenance brochure. The publicly-available brochures may be downloaded and physically duplicated, distributed by emailing the link, or linked on websites.
