EPA Funds Assistance Agreement for Cleanups at Leaking Underground Storage Tank Sites

On December 15, 2016, the Wyoming Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) Program through the State Lands Investment Board (SLIB) awarded a $15 million CWSRF loan to the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (WDEQ) to continue remediation work at eligible leaking underground storage tank (LUST) sites throughout the state.  The loan is 83% funded by the Environmental Protection Agency, via a capitalization grant to the Wyoming CWSRF.  Wyoming’s LUST cleanup program began in 1990 and has remediated or cleaned up 1,257 contaminated source sites.  There are currently 363 sites in some phase of corrective action (design/selection of the remediation technology to be used, construction of the chosen remediation technology, or operation and maintenance of the remediation technology). There are 6 sites scheduled for future projects.  During state fiscal year 2017, Wyoming’s LUST program will use CWSRF funds to continue remediation work at 44 projects comprising 363 sites throughout the state, including (but not limited to) the following recently started projects:  Diamond Shamrock #4545 and Cheyenne 2.
