Fuel oil tankIt is important that fuel is handled carefully and stored properly in well maintained tanks. Fuel storage tanks that are degraded or damaged may leak. When left undetected, leaks turn into large spills that contaminate our groundwater and surface water.

Home heating oil handling and storage, within vulnerable drinking water protection areas, is a common threat to most municipal drinking water sources in the Quinte Region.

Do your part to protect our drinking water sources and protect your property against costly spills. Take care to ensure the safe handling and storage of fuel on your property.
