Even though we've been reminding everyone about Vermont's new rules for above ground oil tanks since last summer, we know there's still a lot of confusion about what it all means.
Basically, the regulations now require that all above ground heating oil and kerosene tanks be inspected every three years to ensure they are in safe operating condition. The key compliance questions we seek to answer during these inspections are:
• Is the tank itself in good shape? (There are no leaks, drips, pitting, rust, dents, cracks or corrosion)
