Leaking underground storage tanks can not only contaminate the soil, groundwater, or surface waters of the source area but may also negatively impact surrounding areas. Petroleum vapors resulting from the release can also affect indoor spaces. Therefore, it is important to properly test all required components of your UST system in accordance with the Regulatory Compliance Requirements. Early detection of a release can help reduce costly clean-up measures and restore the environment back to a healthy and safe level. If a release occurs at your facility, you may be required to implement Corrective Action. Corrective action can also be referred to as “remediation” or “clean-up.”

Georgia Risk Based Corrective Action (GRBCA) Model

A Corrective Action Plan-Part B (CAP-Part B) is required if petroleum contaminants present in the soil and/or groundwater exceed one or more of the thresholds as established in GUST Rule 391-3-15.09(3). If a CAP-Part B is required, the Georgia Risk Based Corrective Action (GRBCA) Model must be used. This approved computer model is designed to determine Applicable Threshold Levels for contaminated sites.
