Comparison: State vs. Federal

· Rules. A number of different state and federal regulations regulate aboveground storage tanks (ASTs), depending on size, location, use of tank, and product stored. Nevada does not have any specific AST requirements. The exception is with regard to AST systems located at or near water located at a marina. Owners and operators of marina ASTs must register the tanks with DEP and pay a registration fee.

The state has adopted National Fire Code and the NFPA Codes 30 and 30A and other standards related to the design, construction, and safe operation of ASTs. See the national section ABOVEGROUND STORAGE TANKS for an overview of NFPA codes and other industry standards applicable to ASTs.
