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"?
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).
