Petroleum Brownfields “That’s a Good Corner”
The Petroleum Cleanup and Redevelopment Fund (Redevelopment Fund), created within the Division of  Oil and Public Safety (OPS), is designed to catalyze the investigation and cleanup of contamination at abandoned and former gas stations and other petroleum storage tank properties. These sites are
common in almost every community throughout Colorado, many being unaddressed for decades. These former storage tank sites are generally not eligible to the Petroleum Storage Tank Fund (PSTF). The Redevelopment Fund can provide reimbursement to a property owner for costs incurred for tank removal, site assessment, cleanup.  The application process to become eligible to the Redevelopment Fund will be discussed along with some success stories.
