On March 15, 2000, the DEQ Heating Oil Tank Program began licensing companies to certify that heating oil tank decommissionings and cleanups were protective of human health and the environment.
HOT cleanup projects can be very complex. Examples of these complex sites include but are not limited to the following:
The current certification fees for Soil Matrix ($250), Generic Remedy ($350) and Risk-Based ($450) allow DEQ to provide limited direction and technical assistance to homeowners and service providers.
These complex sites generally require more coordination between DEQ and the service providers. To meet this need, DEQ developed a HOT Cleanup Agreement that allows DEQ to be adequately involved in complex sites.
HOT Program staff will work with your licensed HOT service provider to determine if issues associated with your site warrant HOT Program Cleanup Agreement enrollment. If so, DEQ will mail the HOT Program Cleanup Agreement packet to you for your review and completion.
Enrollment in the HOT Program’s Cleanup Agreement requires an initial deposit of $500. Once you sign the agreement and submit the deposit to DEQ, an account will be established for your site.
If project costs exceed the account balance, DEQ will submit to you an invoice for all costs in excess of the advance up to a ceiling of $1,000. Note: The $1,000 ceiling applies to residential properties only, and not commercial or industrial sites.
Yes, the certification registration fees for Soil Matrix ($250), Generic Remedy ($350) and Risk-Based ($450) must be submitted when filing the certification for HOT Program review.
If a Cleanup Agreement is in place, the certification registration fee is included with the $500 deposit.
