Benefits of the Program

PHLY's Storage Tank Environmental Policy (STEP) protects insureds from claims for bodily injury and property damage, and from remediation expenses associated with the confirmed release of contaminants into the environment from above-ground or underground storage tanks. Under federal requirements, owners and operators must demonstrate financial responsibility for taking corrective action and for compensating third parties for bodily injury and property damage caused by accidental releases arising from the operation of mainly underground storage tanks and in some jurisdictions above ground storage tanks. This includes releases that may occur from other components associated with the tank (e.g., piping, spill containment devices and dispensing equipment).
