Heating Oil Tank Fees 2019

Adopted rule

Administrative Order No. DEQ 24-2019
Filed date: Nov. 15, 2019
Effective date: Jan. 1, 2020
See Oregon Bulletin, December 2019
DEQ's Heating Oil Tanks program authorizes and facilitates a third party certification process to provide HOT decommissioning and cleanup oversight. To perform HOT decommissioning work, contractors must hold a DEQ service provider license, including errors and omissions insurance, and certify that their work complies with Oregon rules. DEQ’s role is to ensure that work is performed adequately by updating and disseminating standards, licensing service providers, maintaining project records, and auditing project work. DEQ does not receive general funds to conduct this work.
The HOT program is supported by the Service Provider licensure and report filing fees defined in Oregon Administrative Rules chapter 340, divisions 163 and 177.

DEQ proposed and EQC adopted rule amendments to increase existing fees. DEQ convened an advisory committee to review a draft Fiscal Impact Statement and provide input on proposed rule amendments.
