Fuel stations play a crucial role in our daily lives, but what many people may not realize is the potential risks that come with storing and dispensing fuel. Underground storage tanks can leak, contaminating soil and groundwater, which can be dangerous to the environment and human health. In many cases, contaminated groundwater is used as drinking water for local communities. That’s why it’s essential to have effective Wetstock inventory management systems in place to prevent accidents caused by fire, explosion or escape of fuel.
In this blog, we will discuss the importance of Wetstock inventory management for fuel stations, the risks involved if fuel leaks, and the benefits of using an award-winning Wetstock management solution like Fuelsuite.
The Risks Around Wetstock Storage
When fuel leaks from underground storage tanks, it can result in contamination of soil and groundwater. This can lead to fines from the EPA, extensive clean-up costs, loss of product and revenue, and loss of customers due to poor fuel quality. Additionally, pump and tank closures may occur, which can negatively impact business operations. These risks are especially prevalent in urban areas where petrol stations are surrounded by private or commercial premises.
Why Effective Wetstock Inventory Management is Essential
To comply with legislative requirements, all petrol station operators must carry out a risk assessment for their operation and ensure that adequate controls are put in place.
This is where effective Wetstock inventory management systems come into play. An effective Wetstock inventory management system should enable consistent and accurate monitoring of petrol delivered, stored, and dispensed at any petrol station. This will help detect leaks from each underground tank and connected pipeline system, making it easier to prevent accidents.
