Environmentally Sound Practices in the Marina Industry: Summer Operations: Chapter 04: Fuel Storage
Chapter Abstract: This is clip 4 of 7 for this video. Above ground doubled walled storage tanks should have a leak detection system and an emergency shut off valve. Under ground tanks must be double walled and have overflow protection and a shut off valve. Hang hoses vertically or place the nozzle in a drip pan with oil absorbing material. To prevent backslash when filling portable tanks, place the tank in a pan with oil absorbing pads. Automatic shut off nozzles are required, and holding clips are illegal. Keep large supplies of oil absorbing material on hand to get any small spills before they get out of hand.
