Underground Storage Tank Petroleum Clean-Up Program
The EPA-approved Connecticut Underground Storage Tank (UST) Petroleum Clean-up Program provides reimbursement to responsible parties and third parties for investigation and clean-up of releases or suspected releases from USTs for which financial responsibility is required. Heating oil USTs for onsite heating are ineligible for this program. In 2012, the state adopted legislation that will gradually phase out the Program.
The Program expired as a financial responsibility mechanism on October 1, 2013.
