Water Monitoring and Removal is Critical for All Storage Systems
Poor operations and maintenance procedures for water monitoring and removal from storage systems can lead to
a number of problems, from degradation of fuel quality and subsequent vehicle performance, to microbial
contamination and damage of the entire storage system.
This pertains to all storage systems, both underground and aboveground, constructed of any material and storing
nearly any product – gasoline, diesel, residential and commercial heating oils, aviation jet fuel and others.
The entire storage system is potentially impacted by water and its possible consequences, not just the storage tank.
While the tank, as the common collection place, is where chemical reactions can brew, it also provides an easy
means to monitor for water in the system and a common place to treat the problem.
It is imperative that all owners and operators of storage systems immediately implement routine operations and
maintenance procedures for water monitoring and removal of water, if detected.
