LUST Site Assessment

The documents linked to this page all relate to the assessment of sites where leaking underground storage tanks (LUST) are or have been located. The process of assessment uses risk-based corrective action (RBCA). The objective of RBCA is to evaluate the risks posed by contamination to human health, safety and the environment using a progressively more site-specific, three-tiered approach. All proposed corrective actions must be submitted and supervised by a certified groundwater professional.

If necessary, you can receive copies of these documents by contacting Bonnie Garrison at 515-725-8310 or Bonnie.Garrison@dnr.iowa.gov.
