Underground Storage Tanks
The underground storage tank program regulates the permitting, inspection, installation and removal of underground tanks that store motor fuels and chemicals. The Department operates this program in conjunction with the Public Work's, Water & Development Services Fire Prevention Inspector Program. In partnership with Vernon’s business community, the Department has replaced all single-wall tanks with environmentally friendly double-wall tank systems. Operating permits are issued after tank systems have been installed and tested with appropriate leak detection equipment.
