Protecting Public Health and the Environment.
If you own or plan to buy or sell property that you suspect may contain an Underground Storage Tank (UST), it is important to find out. The question of possible contamination from a leaking tank (past or present) will almost certainly come up in any transaction involving property which has or has had an UST.
USTs are commonly found at gasoline stations, convenience stores, bus terminals, railroad yards, airfields, and auto dealerships, but have also been found at schools, auto repair shops, farms, homes, factories, retail facilities, and other locations. While certain types of property are more likely than others to house USTs, any property could—USTs have been found in many unusual places.
A walk-through of a property may uncover evidence of abandoned USTs, but won't always. There may be nothing visible above ground to indicate the presence of USTs below ground.
DEQ maintains a database of active and closed UST sites across the state and may have information on the property you are looking to buy or sell. You can search the database by city, county, or DEQ regional office to see if an active or closed UST has been found on the property.
