Project Profile: Quick Gas Mart
El Sobrante, California
While originally developed and most often used for pre-testing newly constructing fueling systems for leaks, iota® is also applicable for cases in which a leak is so minute, other methods are unable to identify it. iota® can find vapor leaks as small as 0.005 gallons per hour, with an unmatched probability of detection. iota® testing led CGRS to a leak in the secondary interstice around the tank bungs.
The Quick Gas Mart owner asked CGRS to obtain a repair permit from Contra Costa Environmental Health and make the secondary containment repairs, after which CGRS re-tested the UST per SB989 requirements and the system passed. The CUPA inspector actually reached out and thanked CGRS for its help in getting the site back into compliance.
