NJDEP UST Fund Updates

Through the Petroleum Underground Storage Tank Remediation, Upgrade and Closure Fund (UST Fund), The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s (NJDEP) Site Remediation Program (SRP) released, on June 8th, 2010, an updated version of the UST Fund application and instructions, FAQs, and Project Summary Sheets.

The updates to the application include revised information and calculations, and are intended to make completing the forms easier. The newly updated forms can be found at the UST Fund website.

In addition to these recent updates, effective July 1, 2010, the UST Fund that is utilized for Grants and Loans will no longer be available for any Remediation activities, including UST Closures, on Regulated tanks. This deadline does not affect new applications for Unregulated tanks (including all residential heating oil tanks), or Supplemental applications for Regulated or Unregulated tanks.
