What is a Class 2 Facility?

The Class 2 facility regulations 18 AAC 75.835 - 18 AAC 75.849 (PDF 723K) were adopted by DEC on April 21, 2017, signed by the lieutenant governor on May 25, 2017, and have been effective as of June 24, 2017.

The purpose of the regulations is to create a statewide inventory of a newly-designated classification of aboveground storage tank facilities: Class 2 facilities.

Class 2 Facilities

  • Are onshore
  • Are not residential properties (i.e. do not include home heating oil tanks)
  • Have a storage capacity equal to or greater than 1,000 gallons and less than 420,000 gallons (Total storage capacity includes aboveground tanks 1,000 gallons and greater)
  • Store non-crude oil (petroleum-based, motor fuels, jet fuels, heating oil, residual fuel oils, lubricants, and used oils)
  • Are not required to have a contingency plan filed with the state

View or print an informational brochure (PDF 194K) on Class 2 facilities. Feel free to print and distribute this pamphlet. It contains contact information including a link to this webpage, suggestions for healthy facility operation, and specifics of this new designation of aboveground storage tank facilities.
