Lead Scavengers Survey Report: In 2013, the Tanks Subcommittee's LUST Task Force requested information from all States and Territories to determine what activites the tanks programs are taking to identify and remediate the lead scavengers 1,2-dibromoethane (EDB) and 1,2-dichloroethane (1,2 DCA). Thirty-five States responded and the Task Force found that there continues to be great variation from State to State on how lead scavenger issues are addressed, which is summarized in this report. The document is available on the Tanks Subcommittee Publications page.
LUST Trust Fund Fact Sheet: The Tanks Subcommittee developed the fact sheet to summarize information, guidance, and budget information specific to the LUST Trust Fund. The Trust Fund provides federal funding to support the U.S. EPA's, States', Territories', and Tribal LUST prevention and response programs. The document is available on the Tanks Subcommittee Publications page.
NOTE: A typo/ error in the original release stated that the LUST Trust Fund is financed by a "0.01 tax". The LUST Trust Fund is financed by a 0.1 cent tax (10x $0.01). The Fact Sheet has been updated to correct this error.
