Aboveground Storage Tanks (ASTs)

The Department of Environmental Management keeps an inventory of ASTs within the State. This inventory provides needed information to better respond in the event of a spill or release. The information provided will also serve as a database to be used by the Department when reviewing the mandatory annual facility inspection reports submitted by AST owners/operators pursuant to section 10(d) (Facilities Inspection) of the Oil Pollution Control Regulations (Regulations).

The Department respectfully requests that you fill out the attached forms if you own or operate an AST (s) with a single or combined AST (s) capacity of 500 gallons or greater. Owners of ASTs with a combined capacity of less than 500 gallons are exempt. At this time registration is free.


New and Replacement Tanks

All new construction/installation of a new facility or replacement tank system should not commence until an application of registration has been filed. The registration information should be signed by a local Fire Department official.

Please mail completed forms to:
