The Hazardous Materials Section is responsible for plan review, permitting, licensing and renewal certification of Underground Storage Tanks (UST) and Above Ground Storage Tanks (AGST). Additionally, the section regulates the sale and storage of Liquefied Petroleum (LP) gas.
The section issues licenses pertaining to the installation of both above ground storage tanks and underground storage tanks, issues permits for the placement of tanks, licenses for LP gas businesses and reviews the plans for refurbished facilities, both individual and tank farm modules, to ensure they meet the current codes. Testing to determine the qualifications as an installer of hazardous material apparatus is administered once a month. Our field staff conducts and/or assists with origin and cause in fire investigations.
For questions regarding LP Gas License Applications, please contact the Licensing Division at 502-573-2002.
