Owning an underground storage tank presents many difficulties. In most jurisdictions, there are a myriad of rules and regulations you must follow. The EPA has financial responsibility requirements you must meet, in addition to the local requirements.
Due to the pollution issues, most insurance companies simply won’t cover them. If you own a small convenience mart with gas, chances are you have a fairly inexpensive business owners policy covering your operations. It’s also highly likely this policy contains an absolute pollution exclusion and will provide NO coverage if your underground tank is leaking. And it’s not just gas stations that should be concerned. If you own a tank, any kind of tank, there are pollution concerns. (Even milk can be considered a pollutant!)
