Virginia Petroleum Storage Tank Fund

Our team provides tank inspections & reporting to ensure environmentally safe procedures.

In the event of a petroleum release from a UST or AST, the Virginia Petroleum Storage Tank Fund (VPSTF) normally provides reimbursement for costs for required environmental corrective action once a deductible (“financial responsibility”) is met. For releases from residential and farm tanks, the deductible is $500. The VPSTF assistance is available for VDEQ-required corrective action only, and it does not cover Building/Fire Code compliance costs exclusive of VDEQ requirements. VPSTF assistance requires pre-approval of activities and accurate claim submittal, so it is important to have an experienced consultant, such as Pollard, handle this process.
