Leaking underground storage tanks are considered a serious threat to public health and the environment. Many industries and other entities are using underground storage tanks (UST) to hold toxic materials like gasoline and diesel, both of which contain dangerous substances. When an underground storage tank in your community starts leaking, the chemicals can quickly attach and contaminate the soil, private drinking water supplies, homes and businesses. The substances that are coming from fuel spills can cause cancer and harm developing children. Hence, it's important to start testing your soil for fuel contamination to ensure the good health of your family.

Spilled fuel or leaking underground storage tanks are a leading cause of gasoline and diesel contamination of soil. Exposure to gasoline and diesel range organic chemicals can lead to long-term health issues, including cancer.
Because of the lax regulations in place for decades, many gas stations and the areas immediately around them have soil contamination caused by fuel leaking into the soil.
Possible chemicals that might be present due to contaminated soil include:
- Ethylene dichloride (EDC)
Some of these chemicals are known carcinogens for humans.
