Underground Storage Tanks (USTs)

State Delivery Prohibition Programs

Delivery prohibition programs prohibit product delivery to underground storage tanks that have one or more compliance violations, as determined by a state or territory. States and territories generally use one of two methods for identifying the delivery eligibility status of USTs:

  • Red Tag Program
    Delivery prohibition programs that physically identify USTs that are ineligible to receive product. The mechanisms are usually red tags, but the mechanisms and their colors can vary by state. The mechanisms are generally attached to the fill pipes of ineligible tanks. If an UST does not have a red tag, then the deliverer can assume that the tank is compliant and eligible for delivery.
  • Green Tag Program
    Delivery prohibition programs that physically identify USTs that are eligible to receive product. The mechanisms are usually green tags or permits, but the mechanisms and their colors can vary by state. The mechanisms are generally conspicuously displayed at the UST facility. If a green tag or permit is present, then the deliverer can assume the tank is compliant and eligible for delivery. The absence of a green tag or permit prohibits deliveries to the UST.
