Underground Storage Tank Program

The mission of the DEQ's Underground Storage Tanks Program is to protect Oregonian’s right to clean water and all other natural resources by preventing future petroleum UST releases. 

The UST Program handles: 

  • Issues related to tank registration and operating certificates
  • Installation, operation and removal of USTs, training of system operators
  • Financial liability protection for future leaks
  • Licensing of contractors working on USTs
  • Enforcement of state UST rules

For federal information pertaining to USTs, please refer to the Environmental Protection Agency's Underground Storage Tank page.
