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.
Qualified facilities will be eligible for rebates starting January 2015. These rebates must be claimed through the Utah Tax Commission on Form TC-116 Schedule R. Provided below is a brief overview of the rebate program.
-- Rebates are based on a facility’s risk value. The risk value for all facilities will be calculated annually based on several factors including, the presence of overfill protection and secondary containment, as well as the age and construction of the UST equipment.
--The risk value calculated on December 15th of each year will apply for the following calendar year. For example, the risk value calculated December 15, 2014 will apply for all of 2015.
--Secondary containment equipment is required to be tested every three years to document functionality. Any containment that fails will need to be repaired and re-tested prior to the annual evaluation date of December 15th, to receive credit as a contained system.
--To see what your facility risk level is currently and evaluate potential rebates, access the UST Priority Assessment Tool.
--The August 2014 Tank Tip provided instructions to all owners to access the UST Priority Assessment tool, and view and adjust a facility’s current risk value and potential rebate. Access the August 2014 Tank Tips (new link).
Watch for the next issue of Utah Tank News for more details about the rebate process. If you have any questions, contact your DERR 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.
