September 2018 Tank Tip:

Request for Small Business Owner

The UST Advisory Task Force provides an avenue for UST program stakeholders to offer suggestions and feedback regarding program operation and development. The Task Force is comprised of representatives of various sectors of the industry, including retail gas stations, the government UST owners, UST installation and service companies, and remediation consultants.

Meetings are generally held four times a year. Topics include items such as: potential changes to statutes or rules, ways to implement various aspects of the program effectively, and areas of emerging concern. The Task Force provides invaluable input to the UST program and allows DERR to work closely with stakeholders to improve the program.

Currently, the Task Force has an opening for a small business UST owner (1-3 facilities) who would be willing to represent smaller UST facility owners. If you are interested in helping shape the UST program, contact Therron Blatter UST Branch Manager, at 801 536-4100.
