If you would like to be notified via email of changes to the reimbursement database and/or process, please email: ust.reimbursement@tn.govThe Division of Underground Storage Tanks has developed a new process for reimbursement involving electronic reimbursement applications. This process consists of three parts: cost task descriptions, cost task spreadsheets, and a cost database. The cost task descriptions provide details of commonly performed tasks at contaminated UST sites (see Reimbursement Guidance Document - 002). The cost spreadsheets provide the breakdown of routine maximum cost for performing each task. The cost database is a Microsoft Access® program and requires you to use version Access® 2007 or higher. This process became effective January 4, 2010. No paper copies will be accepted after January 31, 2010. Updates and revisions to the database will occur periodically. The revised reimbursement documents are effective April 15, 2014. The Microsoft Office Access® program is a 32 bit version. If you require a 64 bit version please email :
