Reporting Releases

A release means any spill, leak, discharge, leach, or disposal from a tank into surface or subsurface soils, surface water, or groundwater.

Should you suspect a petroleum release, your insurance policy contract requires that you promptly notify the Petroleum Storage Tank Fund. If you need assistance, please contact the home office in Boise at 208-332-8100 or 1-877-997-7664, or email us at

Depending on the type of tank you own or operate, there may be additional reporting requirements, as well as spill response requirements.
