UST Time Barred Claim Update

ADEQ has launched the eligibility guide sheet and application form for submission of time-barred claims, a critical industry-driven component of the new UST Revolving Fund Program.

To determine if you may have an time-barred claim eligible for reimbursement, review the guidance sheet and prior state funding spreadsheet.

The application format was designed to organize corrective action data into a format conducive to efficient review.

All time-barred claim applications must be submitted by December 31, 2016 at 5 pm.  Payments will be divided into two categories based on release reported date.  Proportional payment is required, so no payment will be made until 2017.

Preapproval work plan guidance is forthcoming, with a target date of March 1, 2016.

If you have questions, please contact ADEQ or APMA.
