FARMERS - DON’T WAIT!! MAY 10, 2013 IS AROUND THE CORNER!
If you have over 1320 gallons of petroleum storage – the EPA wants you!
Taken from the EPA website: You need an SPCC Plan if: An oil spill from your farm could reach water and you store oil (such as diesel, gasoline, hydraulic oil, lube oil, crop oil or vegetable oil, etc.) in: Aboveground quantities of more than 1,320 gallons; or Completely buried tanks with more than 42,000 gallons of oil.
Southern Tank has been supplying farmers in the central states with small farm tanks since 1937. Our foundation was built on providing the family farm with a wide variety of farm tanks, and we are proud to continue doing so today. Typical non-regulated farm tanks are 300, 550 and 1100 gallons, with support options of skids, flat non roll bars or elevated stands (for 550 gallons and under). Or we can custom build a tank to suit your needs whether it’s a stationary tank or a utility tank for your truck. Southern Tank has several standard sizes and styles of utility tanks for your truck, rectangular or L-shape, and in single or multi compartments. In some states farm tanks 1100 gallons and under are basically “unregulated” and do not require secondary containment or UL 142 labels. Be sure to check your local ordinances and SPCC rules for total capacity limits.
For farms requiring code compliance, Southern Tank can provide your farming operation with fuel storage from 25 gallons to 30,000 gallons in a wide variety of configurations and secondary containment options. (See Above Ground Storage Tanks.) We can compartmentalize your farm tank to your specifications for your on-road and off-road diesels. If you have lube oils you use in bulk, we can provide you with many options for storage whether it’s rectangular or cylindrical.
Need storage for your chemicals and fertilizer? Southern Tank can build you a stainless steel or a carbon steel tank with custom interior linings compatible with a wide variety of chemicals and fertilizers.
Whether your agricultural facility is 10 acres or 10,000 acres, Southern Tank can provide you with EPA compliant farm tanks to fit your operation and keep your equipment moving. From small generator tanks for poultry farms and nurseries to large diesel fuel tanks for row-crop operations, we can provide double wall tanks that meet secondary containment requirements for most locations. Don’t wait until the deadline is here. Give us a call and we can help you bring your fuel storage facilities into compliance for the May 10, 2013 EPA deadline.
