Spotlight: Larry Gregory

May 11th, 2015

larryThis month I’m putting the UST spotlight on a person rather a company, state or trade association. And that person is Larry Gregory of Snoqualmie, WA.

So how will this affect Class C UST training and spill response in Oregon? Do more live class C operators per site equal fewer spills? Are Oregon gas stations safer because there’s always someone standing by the dispenser 24/7? Would there be slower spill response if this rule is enacted?  Many questions but few answers at this point.
