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

August 2015 Tank Tip:


For over 13 years, the Utah UST program has been able to continue providing services without raising the annual tank registration fees.  With the increased cost of doing business coupled with a reduction in federal funding, the amount of work subsidized out of the Petroleum Storage Tank (PST) Fund has increased.  In order to protect the balance of the PST Fund, the Division is proposing to assess fees for the installation and closure of USTs.  By targeting these specific services, the Division can avoid a general increase in the annual UST registration fee to all owners.  The complete background and explanation for the proposed fees can be viewed at: FY 2017 Ust Fee Proposal Summary

Information about the fee hearing and submitting a written comment can be found at: DEQ Public Notice

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.
