Spotlight: Golf Courses & Storage Tanks

We are already halfway through July and many summer activities have returned to a normal pace. With more than 15,000 golf courses across the country, the operations at these facilities can pose significant environmental exposures.

Golf courses typically have aboveground storage tanks with capacities of 550 gallons or less, which means that the tanks are not regulated by the states and do not require Financial Assurance.
