Storage Tank Compliance

The Storage Tank Compliance Section is part of the Permitting and Compliance Assistance Program in the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Division of Waste Management. In 1983, Florida was one of the first states in the union to pass legislation and adopt rules for underground and aboveground storage tank systems (USTs and ASTs). There are over 22,000 storage tank facilities across the state of Florida, and in 2018 the Storage Tank Compliance Section conducted more than 13,000 inspections. Florida relies on groundwater for about 92 percent of its drinking water needs and has some of the most stringent rules in the country.
