Petroleum products stored and sold at retail service stations are typically hazardous to the environment. As all storage tanks at these outlets are installed underground the risk of environmental contamination in the event of a leak is ever present.
Loss of product to ground can have a serious impact on underground water supplies, nearby rivers and streams as well as the soil in the immediate vicinity posing a health risk to plants, animals and local communities. Exorbitant clean up costs, loss of revenue and spoiled reputation could result if sites wet stocks are not properly managed and analysed.

Wet stock management is the process that a fuel storage operator would use to keep accurate control of the purchase and sales of all fuel delivered and dispensed on their site. These records need to be retained on site for a minimum of 5 years and made available to any local authority or inspector to view when requested.
