4. Storage of fuel
tanks (Page 8):
I like this section but again this is a planning document. Are fuel tank locations required to be shown on a proposed plot plan? If not this is totally unenforceable. Recommend have the MSB making an ordnance if this section is important. 
Perhaps also allowing double-walled tanks in lieu of containment. Although this section was mocked in the meeting, I agree with the purpose - I have designed containment tanks for oil-filled transformers.  
They catch water as well as oil and are a maintenance item - the water/oil must be pumped out and discharged into an oil-water separator. So I appreciate what you are doing but I don't think this is the right avenue.
