Description
 
This publication is an electronic download.  Liquid petroleum products such as gasoline, diesel, and heating fuels are often stored in aboveground or underground storage tanks. These tanks can leak or spill, allowing contaminants to move through the soil to the groundwater that supplies your water well. This publication focuses on safely storing diesel, gasoline, kerosene, and liquid heating fuels in tanks that are exempt from regulation by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. It also discusses how to identify the potential risks of storing petroleum products on your property and explains how to address those risks. Go to: SC-017 to order printed copies.
