The U.S. Postal Service, the U.S. Secret Service, the U.S. Architect of the Capitol, the National Park Service, and the Fort Myer Military Community have been cited by the EPA for primarily failing to test for fuel leaks from USTs. The inspections performed by EPA at these facilities were required by the Energy Policy Act of 2005, which mandated that all federal USTs, not inspected since December 1998, be inspected by the August 2007 deadline. In 2007, 11 UST violations at federal facilities in the U.S. were settled for a total civil penalty of $48,288. These enforcement actions prevented 72,775 gal of contaminants from release into soil and groundwater. In settlement agreements with EPA, the cited agencies neither admitted nor denied liability for the alleged violations, but did certify compliance with applicable UST regulations.
