    Although the amount of leak-detection research conducted by industry and government has expanded dramatically since the release of EPA’s regulations, conclusive answers to some research questions remain elusive. 18 peer-reviewed papers provide an objective, indepth view of underground storage tank (UST)/leak detection issues, such as:

    • Internal Monitoring

    • External Monitoring

    • Regulations and Standards

    • Site and Risk Evaluation
