How do I know if I have an underground storage tank? Review these tips to find out.
The Fire Department cannot confirm if an underground storage tank is on a property. We can only confirm if the property has ever applied for a storage tank removal permit. Environmental testing must be done by an independent contractor to confirm if a tank is on a property.
Before arranging the removal of an underground storage tank, the following guidelines must be followed:
For removals of commercial use tanks, a complete set of engineered drawings must be submitted to the Fire Prevention division of the Fire Department.
For removal of residential use tanks, a site drawing and tank location must be submitted to the Fire Prevention division of the Fire Department.
