Underground Storage Tank Cleanup Fund

School District Account (SDA) Information

The SDA was created to provide funding to claims filed by school districts for the reimbursement of eligible corrective action costs associated with cleaning up contamination caused by leaking petroleum USTs. The State Water Resources Control Board will continue making payments to school district claimants until the monies in the SDA are exhausted, or the UST Cleanup Fund sunsets.

School district claims are assigned an Annual Site Budget. For more information on Annual Site Budgets, visit:http://www.waterboards.ca.gov/water_issues/programs/ustcf/technicalformsinfo.shtml.
