The Plenary Session opened at 8 am Monday and asked the question – Can you promote environmentally responsible behaviors and decisions? Clearly, yes. After all, our government’s regulators have a range of “tools” to help motivate people and businesses. We all wish it was a simple act to just do the right thing. Everyone with an underground tank knows that there is a lot more to it.
Two mid-morning sessions focused on (1) Release Prevention through Compliance and (2) Searches for Responsible Parties. An obvious link for these sessions could be – if you are not doing leak detection, someone will be held accountable.
Two afternoon sessions discussed (1) single wall UST linings and co-structural double-wall upgrades and (2) State Fund Soundness Measures. Lots of food for thought.
