UST Leak Prevention Programs

NOTICE: The Tank Site Improvement Program (TSIP) application submittal period ended Friday, Oct. 8, 2021. Only applications for confirmation of a suspected release may be accepted outside of the defined submittal period.

Leak prevention activities, also known as noncorrective actions, are proactive measures designed to prevent future releases, which can lead to costly cleanups. Eligible UST owners, operators and property owners may request financial assistance from ADEQ through either the State Lead Noncorrective Action Program or TSIP.

Noncorrective actions include UST system removals, baseline assessments and sampling to confirm a suspected release. Under TSIP, funding is also available for UST system replacements and modifications to bring UST systems up to current performance standards.
