The Utah State Underground Storage Tank program is a regulatory branch of the Department of Environmental Quality. Its primary goal is to protect human health and the environment from leaking underground storage tanks (USTs). The UST staff oversees UST notification, installation, inspection, removal, and compliance with State and Federal UST regulations concerning release prevention and remediation. Get more details.

Tank Tip

June 2016 Tank Tip:


During the 2016 Utah Legislative Session, changes were made to the underground storage tank (UST) registration fees. These changes go into effect on July 1, 2016 (state fiscal year 2017). 

  •  Annual registration fees increased from $100.00 to $110.00 per tank for PST Fund facilities and from $200.00 to $220.00 for tanks not participating in the PST Fund. 
  • A new tank installation permit fee of $500.00 and an additional $200.00 per tank fee assessed in areas where State inspectors conduct the installation inspection. 

See the upcoming Summer 2016 UST Newsletter for additional information on the fee increases.
