Safe storage of fuel, including the use of above-ground tanks and containment facilities, is critical to the protection of the environment. In Maryland, all underground fuel storage tanks and 10,000 gallon or larger above-ground storage tanks are regulated by MDE. Local laws and regulations related to storage of fuel may vary.
Best Management Practices
- Locate fueling facilities under roofed areas with a concrete (not asphalt) pavement. Areas should be equipped with spill-containment and recovery facilities.
- Use of above-ground fuel tanks is preferred.
