Reimbursement from the Petroleum Storage Tank (PST) Remediation Fund

The Petroleum Storage Tank Remediation (PSTR) fund that had provided reimbursement for remediation of contamination resulting from leaking petroleum storage tanks has ended.

In accordance with Texas Water Code requirements, the Petroleum Storage Tank (PST) reimbursement program has expired.  As of September 1, 2012 no additional reimbursements will be made from the PST Remediation Fund.

Note that although the reimbursement program has expired, the state’s PST Program will continue to regulate underground and aboveground storage tanks and oversee the cleanup of releases.

Please note: The PST Reimbursement Application Query is also no longer available.
