I did not receive the annual permit to operate due to outstanding violations. What happens now?
Unless the facility ceases operation, a violation for operating an underground storage tank without a permit will be cited. Formal enforcement, such as an Administrative Enforcement Order (AEO) or referral to the District Attorney may follow. Tank owners who operate an underground storage tank without a permit to operate are liable for a civil penalty of not less than five hundred dollars ($500) or more than five thousand dollars ($5,000) per tank per day of violation.
