Agricultural Chemical Secondary Containment

The Agricultural Chemical Secondary Containment Program administers Title 198, “Rules and Regulations Pertaining to Agricultural Chemical Secondary Containment” for commercial and private secondary containment and loadout facilities for bulk liquid fertilizer and pesticide storage. Title 198 also includes requirements for the loading and rinsing activities of custom applicators of liquid fertilizers and pesticides.

The regulations provide specific requirements for design by a Nebraska Registered Engineer, construction materials, containment capacities and maintenance. Although no permit or registration is required, the operation must have a construction plan for the facility, including a management program.
