National Surveys

2006 NEIWPCC Survey: State Experiences with Petroleum and Hazardous Substance Releases at LUST Sites, Heating Oil Tanks, and Out of Service Tanks
In 2006, NEIWPCC received a grant from the U.S. EPA Office of Underground Storage Tanks to develop and conduct a national survey that would address primarily topical LUST-related issues but also other programmatic areas that would help provide insight into state experiences. All 50 states responded to the survey electronically thereby allowing readers to view the raw and compiled data. Some survey questions paralleled those asked in the 2003 survey; all results from the 2006 survey are compared in the “State Response Summary” and the “Survey Report” attachments.

2003 NEIWPCC Survey: Survey of State Experiences with MTBE and Other Oxygenate Contamination at LUST Sites
In 2002, NEIWPCC received a grant from the EPA Office of Underground Storage Tanks to develop and conduct a national survey to determine how MtBE and other oxygenate contamination affects state LUST programs and the cleanup of contaminated sites. The survey focused on the following oxygenates: methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MtBE), tertiary-butyl alcohol (TBA), ethanol, tert-amyl methyl ether (TAME), ethyl tertiary-butyl ether (EtBE), and diisopropyl ether (DIPE). This survey was a follow-up to the 2000 NEIWPCC survey that focused primarily on MtBE. As with the 2000 survey, responses were received from all 50 states.

2000 NEIWPCC Survey: A Survey of State Experiences with MtBE Contamination at LUST Sites
NEIWPCC received a grant from the EPA Office of Underground Storage Tanks to conduct a survey of all 50 states to determine how MtBE contamination is affecting state LUST programs and the cleanup of contaminated sites. The following summary of state responses provides a fairly comprehensive snapshot of state experiences with MtBE to date. Survey questions covered topics including State MtBE Standards, MtBE Analysis, MtBE Site Assessment, MtBE Remediation, Other Oxygenates, GIS, and Information Needs.
