SUPTS. MEMO. NO. 189
December 6, 1996
|FROM:||Richard T. La Pointe
Superintendent of Public Instruction
|SUBJECT:||Underground Heating Oil Tank Exemption|
Enclosed is a copy of a letter sent by the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to registered heating oil tank owners concerning the elimination of regulation of heating oil storage tanks, when the heating oil is used on the premises. Although DEQ indicated that they notified all registered tank owners, the elimination of this regulation does not seem to be common knowledge among school divisions. Please contact the DEQ regional office nearest you if you have any technical questions. Please note that spills and releases from these unregulated tanks still need to be reported, and your liability for any damage to the environment is maintained. For general questions on this subject, call David L. Boddy, Director Facilities Services, at (804) 225-2035. RTL:cle Enclosure: A hard copy of this memo and its enclosure will be sent to the superintendent's office.
