Responsibility for Corrective Action

Our team provides tank inspections & reporting to ensure environmentally safe procedures.

The party owning the real estate when a petroleum release is reported to the VDEQ will generally be responsible for corrective action, if any, as required by VDEQ. If it is determined that a previous owner or person responsible for the property knew or should have known about leakage and failed to report it, that person/entity may be liable for clean-up and/or fines pursuant to SWCL.
