Applications for tank permits can be obtained from the CSFD Office of the Fire Marshal, 375 Printers Parkway. Submittals for new tank permits AND PLAN SUBMITTALS shall include, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, a dimensioned to scale site plan that shows the location of the tank, a declaration of size/contents, manufacturer's cut sheets that show the construction/material that the tank is made of and the method/available volume of secondary containment in accord with Chapter 27 of the 2003 International Fire Code. vehicular protection devices, if required, shall also be shown and described on the site plan. Include fuel chemical inventory information, and MSDSs for all chemicals; show piping, labeling, placarding. Tanks shall be designed and installed in accordance with the IFC 2003, as amended, Chapters, 27, 34, 22, and NFPA 30. Per the CSFD Fee Schedule, Tank Permit fees are $180 for the first two tanks + $90 plan review fee, plus $90 for each additional tank.
