Tank Tip

January 2019 Tank Tip:

Utah PST Loan Fund

Are you interested in removing your old tanks and installing new tanks? The Utah PST Loan Fund limit was increased to $100,000 per tank with a maximum of $300,000 for all tanks in 2017. Loan fund conditions include:

  • Applicants must participate in the PST Fund to receive a loan,
  • Interest rate for new loans is 0%, and
  • Maximum repayment term is 10 years.

Loans are also available for repairs and upgrades. If you fail a test or inspection of your leak detection, overfill prevention or spill buckets, consider applying for a PST loan to cover the repair or replacement costs.
