NH Petroleum Reimbursement Cleanup Fund
NH homeowners now have an incentive to have their heating oil systems inspected. The State of NH offers access to an oil spill reimbursement fund if you do not have private insurance that covers a leak. The only requirement to meet this funds eligibility is to ensure that your oil tank system is up to current codes. To qualify for fund coverage your oil tank system must meet National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Chapter 31 and the NH DES Best Management Practices (BMPs) for the installation and upgrading of on-premise-use heating oil tanks by July 2014. Please refer to the NH DES website at http://des.nh.gov for any questions regarding the cleanup fund. If you have questions regarding current heating oil system codes, please call our office at 1-800-628-8260.
