Assessment and Remediation
Site Investigation

A site investigation (SI) may be directed if contamination levels exceed screening levels. An SI will be used to determine the full extent of contamination in the soils, surface water, air, sediment, groundwater and/or bedrock. The Site Investigation Outline provides the minimum requirements for an SI report. Some sites have unique features and may require additional information.

All facilities within the site investigation phase that are eligible to receive reimbursement from the Financial Responsibility Account (FRA) and Petroleum Storage Tank Account (PSTA) of the Petroleum Storage Tank Environmental Assurance Fund (PSTEAF) are ranked in accordance with 401 KAR 42:290. Reimbursements from the FRA and PSTA are determined by this ranking system.
