Heating Oil Tank Databases

This database is a searchable format of DEQ’s Heating Oil Tank voluntary decommission registration list.  These sites are decommissioning projects certified by a licensed service provider or homeowner.

Performing a Search

  1. Street Address: This is the mailing address of the site. If you only know the street name you can enter that in the "Street Address" field (uncheck the null box) and get a list of all recorded certified decommissions on that street. Or, you can enter an address number without the street name (such as 5600) to narrow your search to one or a few sites.
  2. View Report Button: Click on this button to perform a data search after you have entered data into appropriate fields and unchecked the null box.
  3. To obtain a copy of the DEQ closure letter please file a public records request listing the HOT ID number and property address.
