Underground Storage Tanks 2025

Proposed rule

Rulemaking contact: Diana Foss, 503-869-0770

The intent of this rulemaking is to improve the safety of underground storage tank systems by increasing DEQ oversight of the work that UST service providers and supervisors perform on UST systems, and by ensuring that those who work on UST equipment demonstrate a minimum competency in performing that work. The rules governing UST service providers were updated in 2003, and do not reflect the newer requirements for testing of UST equipment that were updated in Oregon in 2018 and implemented in 2020.

Advisory committee

DEQ is convening an advisory committee to review the technical issues and fiscal impacts related to the proposed rules. In convening this committee, DEQ has appointed members that reflect the range of entities that are both directly and indirectly affected by proposed changes to the rules.
