The most important considerations are the volume and type of substance released and constraining site features that can hinder or prevent effective implementation of a technology. To lesser extent, the financial ability of responsible parties to implement certain technologies and the impact on facility production or service operations also should be considered.
Table 11.20.8 summarizes potential applicable corrective action technologies commensurate with release volume and chemical characteristics. Applicable site data needs for potential technologies are presented in Table 11.20.9.
Initial Response Action. The first response action must minimize immediate risk to human health and the environment; all remaining product must be removed from leaky tanks. Table 11.20.10 lists potential situations and their associated initial corrective actions.
Permanent Response Action. Table 11.20.11 gives examples of permanent corrective actions for a variety of site-specific problems.
