Considering present circumstances, the state is experiencing a decline in revenue to the Inland Protection Trust Fund. Given the decline in the revenue to this fund we are pausing future obligations and prioritizing continued operation of remediation systems, well abandonment for site closure, securing sites and safety issues. We are working with the Governor’s Office and Legislature to monitor this situation and, as it evolves, we will communicate any changes with you.

Advanced Cleanup of Individual Sites Scheduled for Redevelopment
Beginning July 3, 2017
Posted June 30, 2017
The Petroleum Restoration Program has provided the below links for information regarding Advanced Cleanup of Individual Sites Scheduled for Redevelopment. Applications may be submitted beginning July 3, 2017. These documents may be updated periodically by the PRP.
The Petroleum Restoration Program has updated the Conditional Closure Agreement (CCA) and the Declaration of Interim Restrictive Covenant (RC) to address applications where the property use is prohibited or has an existing well.

Updated forms and instructions are available on the PRP Programs webpage.
Retainage for new work funded by the Petroleum Restoration Program through Work Orders (WO) and Purchase Orders (PO) issued after Aug. 31, 2016, will be 5 percent.
Field Requests for Change Orders can be authorized only if sufficient contingent funding is available in the SPI to offset the change amount for a net zero change. Prior to mobilizing for the field work, confirm that contingent funding is available (if appropriate). The change order form and guidance are both available on the Templates webpage.
