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.



Tank Tip

March 2015 Tank Tip:

USTs and the Utah Division of Air Quality

The Utah Division of Air Quality (DAQ) administers the Stage 1 vapor recovery program for gasoline USTs.  Under that program, fines can be levied for missing or non-functional equipment.  Vapor recovery equipment includes:.

  • Pressure vent caps installed on gasoline USTs vent lines,
  • Functional poppets on 2-point vapor recovery systems, and
  • Co-axial drop tubes on single point vapor recovery systems

Gasoline vapors can also escape through damaged or broken UST riser caps for tank probes or any other tank top fitting that is loose. 

Stage 1 vapor recovery requirements vary depending on the monthly throughput at the facility, if you have questions on specific requirements for your facility, call Susan Weisenberg of the Utah DAQ at 801 536-4045.

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.
