Are Permits needed for Fuel Tank Installation in Naperville?

Aboveground tanks or environmentally safe underground fuel tanks for the storage of motor fuels at remote locations, may be approved by special permit issued by the Office of the Naperville Fire Marshal.

Aboveground tanks or below-ground fuel tanks used for the storage of motor fuels/oils at locations to which the public does not have access shall be installed in accordance with this Section and the requirements for fire resistant tanks or tanks in vaults specified in NFPA 30A listed in Chapter 57 of the IFC (2018).

The application to install, remove, repair or alter any stationary tank for the storage of flammable or combustible liquids shall contain a general description of the proposed work and include two (2) copies of a drawing indicating the location, use, capacity and piping arrangement of all existing and proposed tanks located, or which are to be located, on the premises and all adjacent structures and property lines. Information confirming that the tank complies with the design requirements of the International Fire Code Section 105 shall be attached to or made a part of the application.

In Illinois, The Division of Petroleum & Chemical Safety was created to manage the problems caused by the thousands of underground storage tank systems containing petroleum or hazardous chemicals. The division regulates petroleum and chemical storage tanks through registration to ensure the protection of public health and safety. The division has registered more than 73,000 tanks in Illinois. Other duties include issuing permits for all tank installations, removals, repairs, upgrades, relining and abandonment-in-place. Eligibility and deductibility determinations are also made to determine if a tank owner can access the leaking underground storage tank fund. Inspectors in this division respond to petroleum and chemical leaks and spills.
