DEC Notice of Violation Correction

When a PBS Facility is found to be incompliant with DEC regulations they will be issued a NOV. This document describes your violations, provides a time-frame for correction, and specifies the documents needed to demonstrate compliance. Failure to correct can lead a facility to face fines up to $10,000. 

If your facility has been issued a Notice of Violation, lean on the professionals at Optima Environmental Services to get your facility back in order. 

What is a Petroleum Bulk Storage Facility?

To maintain the welfare of our ecosystems and environment, the Department of Environmental Conservation continuously monitors Petroleum Bulk Storage facilities for compliance with NYSDEC regulations. A facility may be classified as a PBS facility when it houses:

  • One or more tank systems that are designed to store a combined capacity of more than 1,100 gallons or more of petroleum in aboveground and/or underground storage tanks; or

  • one or more underground tank systems that are designed to store 110 or more gallons of petroleum.
