Construction and Design

Guidance is available to state agencies for installing new fuel storage tanks.

The FSTP reviews the fueling needs for each agency or department upon request and recommends a solution for each site. Considerations include release detection, spill protection, overfill protection, corrosion protection, tank monitoring systems, proper tank and piping installation, record keeping, and overall regulatory compliance.

Construction contracts are awarded through a competitive bidding process to a private sector company. The FSTP inspects the fueling system during construction, and also submits the fueling system to a rigorous final examination before it's activated.
