Leaks from underground storage tanks or spills on the forecourt pose one of the biggest sources of groundwater contamination. Not only can it cause huge environmental damage, it can result in massive clean-up costs, huge fines and even law suits – if the contamination goes beyond your site.
Regulations in NSW and Victoria require storage tank operators to take all practicable measures to prevent pollution. As well as mandatory leak detection systems like SIRA, under NSW guidelines site operators must have groundwater monitoring wells installed and monitored every six months. In Victoria, operators required to undertake groundwater monitoring if the site is sensitive.
At Leighton O’Brien, we believe any responsible fuel retailer sitting on thousands of litres of underground fuel should know the potential for groundwater contamination both on your site/s and neighbouring properties – which opens up huge liability concerns.
Reducing your site’s environmental liability and keeping groundwater monitoring records also increases the value of your asset should you wish to sell down the track.
As the market leader in leak detection solutions, we offer a comprehensive groundwater quality assessment service that can help you:
