UST Compliance

The UST Compliance Section of the Groundwater Branch is responsible for implementation of equipment and leak detection standards for underground storage tank systems. These staff perform inspections and recommend enforcement action where needed. This Section also serves to provide the regulated public with as much information as possible to ensure that a tank owner or operator understands what their responsibilities.

Comprehensive UST Application for Reporting Data (CUSTARD)
CUSTARD currently consists of an email collection tool, a Facility Report tool, a UST-specific form list, the AST registration certificate tool, and a link to pay UST Regulatory Fees. This UST Email Collection Tool will allow owners and operators of UST systems to register their email addresses with the Department. They will be used to send testing reminders, regulatory updates, invoices, and more. The Facility Report Tool will allow anyone to look up any UST site and generate a detailed status report.
