What is an underground petroleum storage system (UPSS)?

An underground petroleum storage system (UPSS) includes underground storage tanks (USTs) and associated pipe work, mostly found at service stations.

Fuel leaking from any part of a UPSS can have significant, adverse impacts on people, property and the environment.  Spills, overfills and leaking USTs or piping may lead to fire, explosion and contaminated soil and groundwater.

Installation, maintenance and removal of UPSSs including USTs must be properly managed in accordance with relevant state and territory legislation to ensure hazards are adequately controlled and risks minimised.
