Q: Can GOS perform work under the Underground Storage Tank Trust Fund reimbursement program?
Yes. GOS performs only the environmental corrective action activities that will be approved for reimbursement by the regulatory authorities.

Additionally, GOS’ rates are well within the industry standards that are regularly approved for reimbursement by the trust fund.
Q: I want to purchase a former gas station property and redevelop it for other uses. Will the state or federal government environmental regulations prevent me from using the property?
No. Former retail service stations are often redeveloped into commercial properties without limitations. GOS can perform corrective action activities at a property if necessary without hindering the use or redevelopment of a property.
Q: I am not in the business of buying or selling fuels. Can GOS still help me as I am evaluating the purchase of an old gas station property?
Yes. GOS can perform environmental assessment and corrective action activities at a variety of different properties. We often perform work for property owners outside of the petroleum industry.
