Tank Tip

May 2018 Tank Tip:

Petroleum Storage Tank Trust Fund (PST Fund)

Have you been thinking about removing or replacing your old tanks or performing an upgrade on your UST system? Consider a loan from the State PST Loan Fund. A bill passed this last legislative session that:

Increased the limits for each loan to $100,000 for each tank or $300,000 for all tanks at one facility

  1. Requires that you participate in the PST Fund to receive a loan,
  2. Keeps the interest rate for new loans at 0%, and
  3. Keeps the maximum repayment term of 10 years.

For questions about the Loan Fund, call the UST Compliance Section at (801) 536-4100.
