The Division of Oil and Public Safety's (OPS) Compliance Section administers laws and regulations to maximize the protection of consumers, retailers, and refiners of petroleum products while monitoring product quality and accurate measurement of fuel products dispensed. Our mission is to prevent releases from all regulated petroleum storage tanks and to provide the utmost protection to public health and the environment from any contamination caused by leaking petroleum storage tanks.
The Remediation Section regulates the assessment and remediation of petroleum releases at over 1,000 contaminated sites within Colorado. It is the goal of the Remediation Section to identify, assess, and clean up contaminated sites while protecting human health and the environment.
The Fund Section receives and processes applications to the Petroleum Storage Tank Fund (the Fund) for reimbursement of costs related to assessment and cleanup of petroleum contaminated sites.
