The National Tanks Conference was held in Pittsburg. PA this year. Seeing the Three Sisters spanning the rivers reminds me of the grand origins of the Ohio River on which I live many hundreds of miles away. These waters connect the eastern U.S. Our history as a nation flows with them. ?as Tanks is my favorite conference. I like seeing my old friends and acquaintances I worked with in the regulatory community. I appreciate the focus on release prevention and closing contaminated sites. At its heart, Tanks is a conference that reminds us that petroleum releases impact people, communities, and cities. Releases, which never occur, are the best! When releases do occur, the timely destruction of the contamination at a reasonable cost is paramount. I like meeting with the people trying to build the programs and approaches that will make petroleum releases rare, clean-up efficient, and thus, ultimately. preserve the rivers, our history, and our future.
