Financial responsibility requirements exist to ensure that
owners and operators of regulated petroleum storage tanks have the financial
resources to pay for the cost of corrective action and compensating third
parties for bodily injury and property damage that might result from a release
from a petroleum storage tank system. Regulations specify how much financial
assurance is required and the financial mechanisms that can be used to ensure
that funds are available in the event that they are needed.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is providing
the information below to assist petroleum storage tank owners in understanding
these Financial Responsibility requirements. The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection does not endorse any particular insurance company nor
does it attest to the accuracy of any information contained on any other web
