Introduction

 

The financial cost of corrosion to government and industry within the United States is estimated to exceed $275 billion dollars.   This cost provides vivid illustration of the importance of effective corrosion control and prevention measures.

 

All portions of new or existing UST Systems, including any vent or vapor lines, that routinely contain product and that are in contact with the ground or water must be protected from corrosion using a method that has been approved by Commerce.
