What Do We Have Here? An Inspector's Guide to Site Assessment at Tank Closure

Published in 2013, NEIWPCC has created a brand new training video and companion booklet that covers the nature of petroleum, site assessment at tank closure, inspection equipment, field observations and analysis, planning and decision-making, and site closure. It also covers the basics of sampling and handling soil and water for field testing and for transport to a laboratory for analysis. It is based off of the original 1990 publication on tank closure.
