Underground Storage Tank Branch

The Utah State Underground Storage Tank program is a regulatory branch of the Department of Environmental Quality. Its primary goal is to protect human health and the environment from leaking underground storage tanks (USTs). The UST staff oversees UST notification, installation, inspection, removal, and compliance with State and Federal UST regulations concerning release prevention and remediation. Get more details.

July 2015 Tank Tip:

New Federal Regulations for Underground Storage Tanks

The final federal UST regulations are now available and will be published in the Federal Register within the next few weeks.  The rules can be viewed at: www.epa.gov/oust/fedlaws/revregs.html. Click on the link entitled Prepublication version of the final UST regulations (PDF).

Over the coming years, we will be required to modify Utah’s regulations to reflect these changes.  We look forward to your involvement in that process.  If you have questions about the rules or how they may affect your facility, please contact an UST Section project manager at 801 536-4100.

Introduction of Ethanol Blended Fuel (E10)
Into Utah's Fuel Supply

As part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, the U.S. Congress put into place the requirement for increases in the amount of bio fuel (usually ethanol) that must be mixed with gasoline sold in the United States. In response to this requirement, Chevron and other refineries began to produce and sell gasoline containing 10% ethanol (E10) in Utah.
