Loss Monitoring To Meet Regulations

Do you have a loss monitoring procedure in place for your underground petroleum storage system (UPSS)?

Are you are aware that it is a requirement to monitor for UPSS loss?

Regulation requires that owners and operators monitor for leaks from their Underground Petroleum Storage System (UPSS). 

As the owner of an old or new UPSS it is illegal to allow or ignore contamination resulting from leaking or faulty UPSS.

Loss monitoring has been mandatory for all new UPSS since 1st June 2008 and for old systems from 1st June 2009.

TankCheck software is a loss monitoring tool designed to reconcile your daily tank measurements.  It can be tailored to suit your particular tank and pump configurations.

A Proactive Approach to UPSS

Approximately 30% of the contaminated sites regulated by the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water (DECCW)1 under the Contaminated Land Management Act 1997 (CLM Act) are the result of leaking UPSS.

Contamination from leaking systems can be very expensive to clean up when it goes unchecked for a prolonged period.

A proactive approach to prevent leaks from occurring in the first place is in the interest of both site owners and the general community.

It does not work on other operating systems including Mac OS and Linux.
