Class 2 Facilities
The DEC is in the process of creating a statewide inventory of a newly proposed classification of aboveground storage tank facilities: Class 2 Facilities.
If the regulations are adopted, this new class will include facilities that:
- Are onshore
- Have a total capacity equal to or greater than 1,000 gallons and less than 420,000 gallons
- Capacity includes all aboveground tanks 500 gallons and greater
- Total capacity includes noncrude oil (petroleum-based, motor fuels, jet fuels, heating oil, residual fuel oils, lubricants, and used oils)
- Do not have Contingency Plans filed with the state
The proposed regulations defining Class 2 Facilities and requiring they register with DEC can be found at this link: http://dec.alaska.gov/spar/regulation_projects/pprClass2Fac.htm
The public comment period for the proposed regulations ended on 1/19/17. Comments and questions received by the department are currently under internal review. If adopted, the registration period for the proposed Class 2 will begin in fall 2017. Registration information will be limited to contact information and tank contents and capacity.
On April 24 & 25, 2017, DECís Contaminated Sites Program brownfield staff are moderating the annual State & Tribal Response Program (STRP) Workshop for Alaskaís 28 Tribal Response Program (TRP) grantees at the B.P. Energy Center in Anchorage. At this workshop, TRPís spend two days networking and attending presentations on brownfields, environmental and public health issues. Brochures from DECís Prevention, Preparedness and Response Program with information on Class 2 facilities will be available at this workshop.
