How to Search for UST Records

For access to files pertaining to UST facilities in Oregon that were completely decommissioned before 2016, you must file a public records request using the Public Records Request Center.

Searchable Facility Summary Information 

You must enter the DEQ UST Facility ID#. You can look it up in the Facilities by Zip list, or, if you have an operating certificate number, it is the second number in the string. For example, in the operating certificate number 1-9748-2021-OPER, the facility ID# is 9748.

To Obtain Records

DEQ has digitized Tanks program records so that they are available to the public online and without charge. 

Navigate to Oregon Records Management System website.
