LUST Database
Question submitted on 3/4/13

I am having a difficult time navigating the LUST database. Can you help with this? I need a list of the present and past leaking tanks in Glen Ellyn (DuPage County) Illinois. What does it mean to be "Red Tagged"?

Answer:

Are you referring to the State Fire Marshal's UST database (http://webapps.sfm.illinois.gov/ustsearch/Search.aspx)?

If so, it looks like you can set the Facility Status to ALL, then search by city and download results into an Excel spreadsheet. They have a Help document at http://webapps.sfm.illinois.gov/ustsearch/Help.pdf. To speak to someone about the database, you need to contact the Division of Petroleum and Chemical Safety (http://www.sfm.illinois.gov/about/divisions/ust.aspx). This web page has a phone number and a contact form you can submit.

I did a search for the term "red tagged" as it relates to LUST. When a tank is red-tagged, no additional fuel can be placed into the tank until it is brought into compliance. Fuel remaining in the tank prior to being red-tagged can be dispensed (http://www.sfm.illinois.gov/commercial/ust/faq.aspx#EnforcementandLegal).
