This chapter is intended to protect the ground and surface waters of the Town from contamination, and to protect the public health and welfare. It is adopted under the authority of MGL c. 43B, § 13, the Home Rule Procedures Act.
The requirements of 527 CMR 9.00 Board of Fire Prevention Regulations for Tanks and Containers, as adopted January 9, 1986,[1] shall be complied with for the design, location, and testing of all storage facilities containing 55 gallons or more of toxic or hazardous materials, regardless of whether flammable or not, unless, in cases not under jurisdiction of the Fire Chief, specific departure is authorized by the Board of Health upon its written determination, following consultation with the Conservation Commission and Selectmen, that the nature of the materials being stored makes such departure appropriate, and will result in no compromise in the protection of ground and surface waters.
