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.

March 2019 Tank Tip

Petroleum Storage Tank Trust Fund (PST Fund)
Annual Facility Throughput Declaration Form

Annual throughput declaration forms for facilities participating in the PST Fund will be mailed on March 14, 2019. The PST Fund fees for Fiscal Year 2020 are based on total throughput (the amount of fuel sold or otherwise dispensed per facility) during January 2018 through December 2018.

  • If you don’t receive a throughput form for a PST Fund covered facility, you may request a duplicate form at (801) 536-4100.
  • When you receive the PST Fund throughput form, complete it and return it to the DERR by April 30, 2019.
  • If the completed throughput form is not received by April 30, 2019, the facility will automatically be charged the higher PST Fund fee of $450.00 for each UST.

If you have questions about throughput declarations, call the UST Compliance Section at (801) 536-4100.
