• Petroleum Product Cleanup Fund

    The Petroleum Product Cleanup Fund was established in 1991 pursuant to MGL c21J and serves the primary purpose of providing owners and operators of underground storage tank dispensing facilities for costs they incur in remediating environmental releases. The program is solely for individuals owning a facility which dispenses gasoline or diesel fuel to motor vehicles or boats. These individuals must first conduct a response action at their own expense and then seek reimbursement from the fund. The program operates similar to a trust fund and receives its revenue from owners and operators of dispensing facilities through tank and delivery load fees. The program collects approximately $75 million per year. To date, reimbursements for cleanup activities in excess 1,800 facilities have exceeded $200 million.
