The Storage Tank Regulation Section is part of the Bureau of Petroleum Storage Systems in the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection's (FDEP) 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. Since then, over 28,000 facilities have reported discharges of
petroleum products from storage tank systems. Florida relies on groundwater for about 92 percent of its drinking water needs, and has
some of the most stringent rules in the country.
