Small Owner Tank Removal Account (SOTRA)

IWM is pleased to announce a new SOTRA site in Pendleton County, Kentucky.  Tank removal costs are typically considered a business expense, and are therefore not reimbursable by Kentucky’s Petroleum Storage Tank Environmental Assurance Fund.  However, SOTRA will pay a set fee for tank closure activities for qualifying small owners.  In this case, SOTRA eligibility will save the Responsible Party approximately $40,000 in tank closure and surface restoration costs!
