What's New

Incentive Program

As of January 1, 2017, the Petroleum Program has the authority to use moneys in the Petroleum Storage Tank Fund to provide underground or aboveground storage tank owners and operators who maintain significant operational compliance with incentives in the form of reduced deductibles when upgrading existing tank systems in response to a release.

Enhancements to Listed Consultant Program Forthcoming

OPS is pleased to announce that Recognized Environmental Professionals (REPs) will replace Individual Listed Consultants effective January 1, 2018. The REP designation will better align decision-making responsibility between OPS, environmental consultants and responsible parties by identifying environmental consultants who can demonstrate decision-making experience on environmental characterization and remediation projects.
