Also, Please note that effective July 1, 2010, the UST Fund discontinued accepting new Regulated UST Fund applications. However if a regulated tank is newly discovered, the UST Fund will accept an application in this situation, if the owner/operator files their application for a newly discovered and previously unregistered regulated tank within 18 months from the date of discovery. This deadline does not affect supplemental UST Fund applications for regulated or unregulated (residential heating oil tank) applications.
For additional information please contact the UST Fund at (609) 984-2076.
