Aboveground Storage Tanks

The purpose of the Aboveground Storage Tank (AST) Program is to protect public health and safety and the environment from releases of petroleum and other hazardous substances from tanks. The Roseville Fire Department enforces requirements for tank installation, construction, testing, leak detection, spill containment, and overfill protection.

Aboveground Petroleum Storage Act (APSA)

APSA regulates facilities with aggregate aboveground petroleum storage capacities of 1,320 gallons or more, which include aboveground storage containers or tanks with petroleum storage capacities of 55 gallons or greater. These facilities typically include large petroleum tank facilities, aboveground fuel tank stations and vehicle repair shops with aboveground petroleum storage tanks. The Act does not regulate non-petroleum products.

Facilities with total petroleum storage quantities at or above 10,000 gallons are inspected at least once every three years by a Unified Program Agency and have reporting and fee requirements, while facilities with petroleum storage quantities equal to or greater than 1,320 gallons but less than 10,000 gallons have reporting and fee requirements only. All regulated facilities must meet the federal SPCC rule requirements.
