ONLINE REGISTRATION FEE PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS

Storage tank owners may now pay annual Storage Tank registration fees online through the Department’s ePermitting application on Greenport. Follow the steps below to create a Greenport account and access the ePermitting application. Contact the Division of Storage Tanks at 717-772-5599 with any questions.

  1. Create an account in the DEP Greenport if you do not currently have one. From the Greenport home page, click the “Click Here to Self-Register” button and follow the instructions for creating a Greenport account.

  2. Complete the Electronic Filing Administrator (EFA) Registration and Security Agreement (PDF) and submit to the Division of Storage Tanks via email at tanks@pa.gov or by mail to:
    PA Department of Environmental Protection
    Division of Storage Tanks
    P.O. Box 8762
    Harrisburg, PA 17105-8762

    The EFA Registration and Security Agreement will require the Greenport username created in Step 1. You will also need to provide the Client ID number(s) found on your Storage Tank Registration/Permit Invoice(s). The EFA Registration and Security Agreement serves as your legal authorization to represent the storage tank owner in online business transactions with DEP.

  3. You will be notified via email when the EFA request has been processed. At that time, you can access your account on the ePermitting application by logging into Greenport, then clicking on the button for ePermitting.

  4. Watch the video tutorial linked below, or reference the ePermitting Registration Renewal User’s Guide (PDF) for a tutorial on how to verify your facility information and pay registration fees in the ePermitting application. You must verify that the tank, owner, and facility information is correct before making payment. Any incorrect information must be corrected with DEP by submitting the Storage Tanks Registration/Permitting Application Form or the Storage Tank Registration Amendment Form. Facility contact information may be updated directly through the ePermitting system.


  5. Once payment is made, you will be able to print a temporary registration certificate for each paid facility. This temporary registration certificate is valid for a period of 30 days, or until receipt of your official Storage Tank Registration/Permitting Certificate in the mail.
