Step 1 - The Application

Step 2 - The Fees

The fees are based upon the number of tanks plus the one-time project processing fee. For example:

  • $240.00 (3) tanks ($80.00 per tank)
  • $75.00 filing fee (per project)
  • $315.00 total
  • Local inspection fee may apply – in areas that do not have a local inspection program or projects owned by the State of Indiana

What is a local inspection fee?

  • A local inspection fee is due when a local inspection program is not available in the area you are providing your service. A state inspector would be sent to provide this service. In this case, no other local permit would be required.
  • Local inspection fee requirements
  • Note: If required, the local inspection fee will be $200.00.

Step 3 - The Plans

Provide a “site” plan, showing:

  • Dimensioned location of all tanks to all property lines, buildings and other tanks.
  • Dimensioned location of pumps, dispensers and all other related equipment to all property lines and buildings.
  • Location, type and sizing of all piping and valves.
  • Sections Showing:
    • The depth below ground.
    • Type of covering over the tanks (such as earth, concrete or asphalt, including thicknesses.)
    • Supports, saddles, straps and other related material used to secure, anchor or support the tanks.

For aboveground storage tanks, diking is required unless the tank is an approved, listed double-walled tank.
