We require owners of all current and historic UST sites to cleanup contamination and remove abandoned or leaking tanks. Our cleanup requirements are not voluntary. Our Local Health Code applies to all sites in Pierce County.

Department of Ecology does not normally require cleanup at UST sites. Ecology and Pollution Liability Insurance Agency (PLIA) provide voluntary ways to resolve a site’s status with the State, but those account for a smaller portion of all contaminated sites. Health Department cleanup, permitting and reporting requirements apply to all sites.
