Aboveground Petroleum Storage Act

Aboveground Petroleum Storage

California state law (the Aboveground Petroleum Storage Act - APSA) defines a "Tank Facility" as a facility that stores 1,320 gallons or more of petroleum in aboveground storage tanks (including drums 55-gallons in size or greater). The Environmental Health Division of the Mariposa County Health Department, as the CUPA, regulates businesses storing petroleum in aboveground containers and tanks. Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) plans are required for "Tank Facilities". EPA extended the date by which facilities must prepare or amend SPCC Plans until November 10, 2011. Facilities subject to the Aboveground Petroleum Storage Act must prepare (or amend) and implement a SPCC Plan by the compliance date in accordance with revisions to the SPCC rule promulgated since 2002. Tank facilities are either Qualified or Non-Qualified depending on the amount of petroleum product stored.
