5/19/2020 INote: Scope of work will include the piping from the underground tank to the aboveground tank. AF-1 plan is just the aboveground tank.
5/18/2020 Disapproved2015 IFC - VENT PIPE OUTLETS. Vent pipe outlets for tanks storing Class I, II or IIIA liquids shall be located such that the vapors are released at a safe point outside of buildings and not less than 12 feet (3658 mm) above the finished ground level. Vapors shall be discharged upward or horizontally away from adjacent walls to assist in vapor dispersion. Vent outlets shall be located such that flammable vapors will not be trapped by eaves or other obstructions and shall be not less than 5 feet (1524 mm) from building openings or lot lines of properties that can be built upon. Vent outlets on atmospheric tanks storing Class IIIB liquids are allowed to discharge inside a building where the vent is a normally closed vent. Exception: Vent pipe outlets on tanks storing Class IIIB liquid inside buildings and connected to fuel-burning equipment shall be located such that the vapors are released to a safe location outside of buildings. (2015 IFC ?5704.2.7.3.3) Vent piping not indicated as being 12' above grade.
Disapproved2015 IFC - PROTECTION FROM VEHICLES. Guard posts or other approved means shall be provided to protect piping, valves or fittings subject to vehicular damage in accordance with Section 312. (2015 IFC ?5703.6.4) It appears abovegrade piping is in area with vehicles but not provided with vehicle protection.

FYICERTIFICATION Effective January 1, 2009, all UST installers must be certified by the International Code Council (ICC) IN U1-UST Installation/Retrofitting. Without this certification, contractors will not be allowed to perform an install/upgrade and all associated installation/upgrade, and all associated permit applications forms submitted to the State of Colorado Oil and Public Safety and Colorado Spring Fire Department will be denied. For certification information: www.iccsafe.org or OPS's web site: http://oilcdle.state.co.us
AttentionHAMMERS: The information from this permit application must be entered into the HAMMERS program and added to the facilities hazardous materials information. Visit the following link: https://hammers.springsgov.com/ to add the information to the facility.
AttentionINSPECTION REQUIRED. An inspection is required prior to issuance of the permit. NOTE - EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: The inspector must observe the work being performed. In the case of underground tank installation, the inspector shall witness the installation of the tank, installation of the piping, and any pressure testing. In the case of underground tank removal, the inspector shall witness the tank inerting and removal processes. Any work that is completed without the inspector present, but requires observation, shall be deemed work without permit and assessed an additional fee. To schedule the hazardous materials inspection, please call 719-385-5978 and follow prompts to schedule the inspection. Please have the plan review number ready before calling.
