Massachusetts quarry gains permission for above-ground fuel storage
Attleboro City Council members unanimously voted earlier this month to provide Attleboro Sand and Gravel with a license to install three above-ground fuel tanks at its Attleboro, Massachusetts, quarry, according to a report from the Attleboro Patch.
The license will allow Attleboro Sand and Gravel to store up to 60,000 gallons of fuel on-site in three tanks. One tank will store 25,000 gallons of diesel fuel, another will store 25,000 gallons of No. 6 fuel and the third will store 10,000 of home heating fuel.
When the company requested the license, nearby residents expressed concerns about safety, prompting city council members, the city’s fire chief and fire prevention officer and some area residents to visit the quarry site.
Jeremy Denlea, head of the linceses committee, recommended the city council approve the license, noting that all safety concerns had been addressed.
