SMMCO is a licensed contractor with the State of Ohio to meet all of your underground storage tank needs.

Are you an entrepreneur who is buying an aging fuel handling facility? Do already own one or several locations with underground storage tanks and fuel handling equipment? Have you  discovered an underground storage tank (UST) on your property?  The presence of old storage tanks is not just a simple inconvenience; it also poses an environmental concern. Most older tanks are made of steel, which is very likely to corrode causing the potential for leaks.  This allows for hazardous substances to escape into the environment.

Prior to the 1980’s, underground storage tanks (UST) were not well regulated by state or federal governments.  Back then companies weren’t required to notify the government if they wanted to install a tank and there were no leak detection systems requirements either.  Because of this lack of regulation, it often meant that leaks from tanks would go unnoticed.  On top of that once the property was sold, the new owners wouldn’t even know a tank existed. Today, state and federal regulations are in place to ensure that USTs are registered when they are installed.
