Getting Anhydrous Tanks Ready for Spring| 10/17/2012
"With harvest completed in many parts of the state and well ahead of schedule in others, this is a good time make sure anhydrous nurse tanks are properly set up and maintained to prevent accidental releases," Commissioner Doug Goehring said.
If requested, staff from the North Dakota Department of Agriculture will visit businesses and farms to help tank owners get their tanks into compliance. People can contact NDDA fertilizer specialist Spencer Wagner at (701) 328-1508 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request a compliance assistance visit.
Goehring says that state law and administrative rules require nurse tanks have properly working valves and hoses; have proper decals, and that the tank`s trailer chassis and tires are in good condition.
