Orleans Health Board passes regulations for chemical tanks

Leaks discovered in tanks are required to be reported to an authorized professional so that the leak can be fixed or the tank removed in a safe way. Proper safety features such as specific insulation and the installation of safety valves must be implemented to maintain the tanks in a safe and legal way. Removal of tanks in a timely manner is also required to avoid age-related malfunctions.

All above-ground storage tanks whether outside or in a building must follow these new guidelines. The regulations will be going into effect on September 1.

Permits will be required from the fire department to install new above ground tanks. Any tank storing hazardous or toxic material in a liquid form such as fuels are subject to the approved regulations.

Source In introducing these regulations, members of the board hope to reduce hazards to public health and environmental health from leakages or accidents surrounding these storage tanks.
