Underground Storage Tanks
Certain underground storage tanks that store petroleum or hazardous substances must be registered and inspected by this office. A registration form for federally regulated tanks may be obtained by contacting the Fuels Division. Heating oil tanks over 1,100 gallons, which are exempt under the Federal Notification requirements; require a different registration form to be completed. This form is available from the website. In addition, farm, residential and small heating oil (under 1,100 gallons) require a one time registration form.
A $30 annual registration fee is collected on each operating or temporarily closed tank. Invoices are mailed in November/December and payment is due by January 1. In addition to the annual registration fee, a fee of $90 per tank is collected for the Petroleum Release Remedial Action Fund. This fund is administered by the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality and is used to clean up leaking tanks.
