Today's word: LUST
Theme for this fortnight: INSURANCE
L.U.S.T. stands for Leaking Underground Storage Tank Trust Fund. This is a federally established fund that is used to pay the costs associated with supervising and monitoring clean-ups from underground storage tanks that have leaked and that threaten the environment (contaminated ground water). The fund is also used to enforce mandated clean-ups and to pay the clean-up costs for abandoned sites (where the owners are unknown).
