Building & Fire Code Requirements

Our team provides tank inspections & reporting to ensure environmentally safe procedures.

In addition to SWCL, both the Uniform Statewide Building Code (USBC) and the Statewide Fire Prevention Code (SFPC) require that abandoned or leaking USTs be emptied of any remaining fuel and either removed from the ground (with proper backfilling) or filled with an approved inert solid such as a cement slurry (flowable fill) or an approved foam. Enforcement of the Codes is the responsibility of local building or fire officials, and specifics may vary among the localities. There is no financial assistance (VPSTF or other) for Building/Fire Code compliance.
