More about the UST Replacement Project

Intercity Transit is committed to protecting the environment and groundwater resources. The pre-existing single-walled underground storage tanks were past their useful life. Installation of new, double-walled larger fuel tanks helps meet current environmental standards and future fueling needs of Intercity Transit. This project was the first phase of site improvements planned to support long-term maintenance and operations of Intercity Transit’s fleet.
