The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has proposed revisions to regulations for the bulk storage of petroleum (Petroleum Bulk Storage (PBS)) and chemicals (Chemical Bulk Storage (CBS)) and for the management of used oil. DEC is revising these regulations to reflect changes in State laws and federal laws and regulations.

DEC will accept public comments on these proposed rules through Tuesday, November 4, 2014.

For those interested in submitting comments, three options are available:

  1. submit written comments online at http://www.dec.nys-public-comments.com/ (Link leaves DEC website)
