Leaking Underground Storage Tanks (LUST) and Consequences


Suzy Kennedy, PG

Professional Geologist Manager, PA Department of Environmental Protection



Abstract:  Leaking underground storage tanks (LUST) have the potential to contaminate drinking water and soil, cause vapor intrusion issues, foul surface water and cause other environmental pollution.  With over 20,000 underground storage tanks in Pennsylvania, even a small percentage leaking can cause big environmental issues. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources is charged with working with responsible parties when releases occur in the Commonwealth to ensure that contamination is remediated to a regulatory cleanup standard.  The Corrective Action Process establishes the steps for such cleanups.


Suzy Kennedy is a Professional Geologist with the PA Department of Environmental Protection in the Environmental Cleanup and Brownfields Program.  She is the Section Chief for the Corrective Actions Program.
