Corner of Tab Storage Tank Compliance Corner of Tab Highlights

The Storage Tank Compliance Section is part of the Permitting and Compliance Assistance Program in the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's (FDEP) Division of Waste Management. In 1983, Florida was one of the first states in the union to pass legislation and adopt rules for underground and aboveground storage tank systems. Since then, over 28,000 facilities have reported discharges of petroleum products from storage tank systems. Florida relies on groundwater for about 92 percent of its drinking water needs, and has some of the most stringent rules in the country.

Storage Tank Registration Initiative & Waiver
Period for Emergency Generators

Thumbnail of a flyer

Many facilities in Florida have added standby or backup generators to their sites to increase their emergency preparedness in the last several or more years. Many of those emergency generators are unregistered, but, have larger fuel tanks that meet the requirements for registration with the Department. The Department is undertaking an outreach initiative to provide basic information and to increase tank registrations where needed for facilities with emergency generators. For a limited time, the Department is also waiving back registration and late fees when you initially register any unregistered emergency generator tanks by June 30, 2014. For more information, please view the flyer with contact information specific to your district:
