The purpose of this guidebook is to encourage safe UST removal. When regulated USTs are no longer needed they must be properly closed to avoid future safety and environmental hazards Because these tanks contained flammable or combustible or hazardous liquids, UST removers must exercise the highest safety standards and practices. Accidents at UST removal sites are almost always avoidable. Safe work practices and an awareness of the potential hazards at the UST site will keep workers , the public and the environment safe. This is merely a guidance document and should be used for instructional purposes only. This document is not intended to be an in depth explanation of the rules governing UST systems. You must also follow all the applicable Iowa rules and reference documents.
