The Boiler Inspection Program is now administered by the North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).
  • The Petroleum Tank Release Compensation Fund - the federal government requires all owners of underground petroleum tanks to prove their financial ability to clean up petroleum contamination resulting from a leak.
