Heating Oil Tank Leaks

Heating Oil

Beginning July 23, 2017, the Pollution Liability Insurance Agency will receive all reports of heating oil tank releases and conduct Initial Investigations. During an Initial Investigation we will gather information to determine if a cleanup is required under the Model Toxics Control Act, the state’s cleanup regulation.

All heating oil tank releases should be reported to the Pollution Liability Insurance Agency at 1-800-822-3905 within 90 days of discovery.

We will follow up on reports received outside of our normal business hours of Monday-Friday 8am-5pm on the next business day.

If you believe the release is a threat to the environment or needs immediate action, please contact the Department of Ecology’s Spills Program, or your local health department.

If a cleanup is required, you can apply for technical assistance under our Heating Oil Technical Assistance Program.
