Aboveground Petroleum Storage Tank Program


Aboveground Petroleum Storage Tank Program

The Aboveground Petroleum Storage Tank Act (January 01, 1990), requires owners and operators of aboveground petroleum storage tanks to file a storage statement, pay a fee to the State Water Resources Control Board, and implement measures to prevent spills. Owners and operators are also required to file a Hazardous Materials Business Plan, at the local level, and pay associated fees to the local Certified Unified Program Agency (Amador County Environmental Health Department).

Facilities that are required to participate in the program are those that store 1,320 gallons or more of petroleum. Petroleum includes substances such as gasoline, diesel, jet fuels, lubricants, some petroleum solvents, and used oils.

The Amador County Environmental Health Department, as the local Certified Unified Program Agency, will conduct routine hazardous materials business plan inspections and verify that there is a Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Plan (SPCC) in place.
