Underground Storage Tanks

UCSC operates two underground storage tanks (USTs) for the safe storage of petroleum products. Both tanks are located on the main campus at fleet services and are used to fuel campus vehicles.

Both tanks are operated under permits issued by the county of Santa Cruz. Each tank is double walled and fitted with automatic leak detection, overfill protection, alarms, double walled piping, and is subject to periodic testing to ensure that all safeguards are functioning properly.

Questions concerning the campus underground storage tanks may directed to the Environmental Programs Manager at 831 459-4840.
