assess risks. Your first task is to assess the hazardous material risks at a local gas station. The station has one

30,000-gallon underground storage tank compartmentalized to hold 10,000 gallons each of the three gasoline grades, and

there is one additional 10,000-gallon tank for diesel fuel. The station has four pumps, and each one can deliver all four

products. Also on site is a 2,500 sq. ft. concrete block building used for the cashier and retail sales of service station and

convenience store items.

The station is located at a busy intersection near the center of town. It is adjacent to several other local businesses that

do a brisk business during the day. Across the street from the station is a large housing development with an elementary

school. Behind the station is a city park with playgrounds, baseball fields, and a large wooded area.

Use the GEBMO framework to assess the risks related to the fuels in the underground tanks. Consider physical, chemical,

and natural hazards that may contribute to the risks.

1. Discuss how you applied each of the steps in the GEBMO process and what risks you identified.

2. Provide recommendations for preventing spills or releases.

3. Discuss response actions required in the event of a spill or release.

Support your discussion with appropriate references and in-text citations. Your submission must be a minimum of two

pages and a maximum of four pages in length.
