CHAPTER 49
PETROLEUM CLEAN WATER TRUST FUND ACT
41-4912A.  Storage tanks located on sites where contamination is present. (1) Notwithstanding the provisions of section 41-4912(1)(g), Idaho Code, an owner or operator of a petroleum storage tank or tanks located on a site where contamination is present may be eligible for insurance covering the petroleum storage tanks located on that site if the contamination does not pose a threat to public health, safety or the environment, or was not caused by or released by or from the tank, or if multiple tanks are present on the site, any one (1) of the tanks, for which insurance coverage is sought; provided, however, that the trust fund shall not pay for any corrective action costs or compensation to third parties for bodily injury or property damage arising from the prior contamination present at the site.
(2)  Any contamination caused by or released by or from the tank or tanks which may migrate off-site; contaminate ground water; exceed federal or state standards, guidelines, criteria or contaminant levels for ground water or drinking water; or pose a fire, explosion or safety hazard may be deemed by the administrator to present a threat to public health, safety or the environment. An owner or operator of such petroleum storage tank or tanks will not be eligible for insurance covering the petroleum storage tanks located on that site unless the contamination has been cleaned up or a plan for cleanup or removal approved pursuant to section 41-4912(1)(g), Idaho Code, is being implemented.
(3)  Contracts of insurance issued to an owner or operator of a petroleum storage tank located on a site where contamination is present and where the administrator has determined that the contamination does not pose a threat to public health, safety or the environment, or was not caused by or released by or from the tank or tanks shall exclude from coverage corrective action costs and compensation to third parties for bodily injury or property damage arising out of the prior contamination present at the site.
