If the tank is still being used you may continue to use it. If the tank is not being used then it must be removed and/or properly abandoned in place.
A tank is considered properly abandoned when all of the following steps have been completed:
All of the information shall be detailed on a report from the removal company and submitted on a company letterhead for filing. Date, address, name of property owner and size of the tank and any other pertinent information shall be included in the report. Attached to the report shall be the Lab analysis of the soil sample and the drawing of the site.
Follow steps 4, 5, and 6 from the abandonment procedures. Note: If the soil sample confirms that the tank had leaked and/or free product is discovered in the excavation then the Fire Marshal's office must be immediately contacted and the situation reported.
