    Fund Reimbursement

The Petroleum "Fund" was initially implemented in 1989 by state legislation to assist owners and operators of regulated underground storage tanks in meeting the federal requirement for financial responsibility pursuant to Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 40 CFR 280.90 through 280.99.

The Fund also allows voluntary enrollment of non-regulated petroleum storage tanks and automatically covers releases from residential heating oil tanks. The Fund provides reimbursement to the qualified storage tank owner/operators for corrective action costs associated with cleaning up petroleum product releases.

(1) Describes when regulatory concurrence is needed for excavation during initial abatement activities and when bidding is required for soil disposal in Northern Nevada.
