FUELIowa CEO Reappointed to Iowa UST Fund Board

 

Governor Kim Reynolds has appointed Dawn Carlson to another four-year term on the Iowa Comprehensive Petroleum Underground Storage Tank Fund Board of directors. Carlson was first appointed to the Board in 2010 and has served the past nine years in this role.

The Board is responsible for the financial management of the Fund for the remediation of leaking underground storage tank sites with eligible claims. The Board hires and works with an administrator of claims, approves budgets and expenditures, approves rules and policy, and approves agreements, contracts, projects.

Since 2016, the Board has focused on closing claims with no additional funding. At this time, there are approximately 100 open claims remaining with the Fund and it is projected that the reserve balances will be depleted within two to three years. When the balances are depleted, funding for tank closures and NFA reopener expenses will end. NFA is a term used to describe sites that have received a No Further Action statement from the Iowa DNR. Quite often, these sites are subjected to claim reopening with additional testing or remediation expenses incurred.  FUELIowa members uncertain of the status of their claim should contact our office or contact the Fund Administrators office at 515-440-7016.

Claims Eligible for Iowa UST Fund Benefits

With the reserve balance set aside for remaining claims, it is important to also recognize there are other parties eligible for fund benefits, including governmental entities and innocent landowners previously ineligible for funding. Two memos were distributed earlier this year on these types of claims. UST owners and operators with open claims are urged to identify the status of their open claim and seek assistance if progress has stalled.
