The Entech Group, Inc., a leading NJ oil tank removal company, has confirmed that the NJEDA and NJDEP have put a hold on the NJ Oil Tank Grant Program (PUST Fund) due to insufficient funding.
Established in 1997, The Petroleum Underground Storage Tank Remediation, Upgrade and Closure Fund otherwise known as the NJ Oil Tank Grant Program and the PUST Fund, was created to aid homeowners in the removal of underground oil tanks and remediation of the property, if necessary. The program proved beneficial to NJ residents, as many were able to get tank removal and remediation services at little to no cost.
However, due to insufficient funds, the program is currently on hold with the possibility of being cancelled. Effective May 3, 2011, new PUST Fund applications for the non-leaking tank program will not be processed, however, applications for the leaking tank program will be date stamped and held until, if and when, sufficient funds become available.
