Underground Storage Tank Branch

Underground Storage Tank Program

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 2014 Tank Tip

June’s Tank Tip discussed PST Fund rebates for qualified facilities. The risk value for each facility will be determined based on the equipment at that facility. The Priority Assessment allows you to see the current risk value of a facility and project the impact of upgrading UST system components:

  1. Find the facility by the 7 digit facility ID number, owner or facility name, or address
  2. Click on Details and read (then close) the UST Priority Assessment Disclaimer,
  3. The section labeled “Likelihood Assessment” provides the rebate risk value,
  4. The number listed next to “Current”, represents a facility’s risk value based on the current UST system,
  5. Under “Criteria”, the type of UST equipment can be changed and a new risk value qualify for larger rebates.

If you have questions, call 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.
