Each point on the map is an open LUST site.* An open LUST site is a location where a release has occurred from an underground storage tank system and where corrective actions have not been completed to meet the appropriate land use criteria. An open LUST site may have more than one confirmed release (e.g. gasoline, kerosene, used oil).
