UST/Leaking UST Stakeholder Meetings

2014 Stakeholder Meetings

A series of stakeholder meetings took place in 2014 to discuss proposed framework for the Underground Storage Tank Program (UST) as mandated by two legislative bills:

  • House Bill 2708 — Prohibits delivery of fuel to USTs that cannot demonstrate financial responsibility obligations and includes proposed framework for the UST Program, including the development of standard Arizona-specific UST insurance
  • Senate Bill 1314 — Allows owners or operators to forego a baseline site assessment and the standard Arizona-specific policy legislated by HB 2708 if they can demonstrate that they meet federal and state financial responsibility requirements

An actuarial analysis of the proposed UST Program was completed by Taylor and Mulder in June 2014 | View >

The stakeholders were comprised of UST owners and operators, insurance companies, local insurance agents and brokers, and petroleum marketers.
