West Virginia officials are reminding tank owners to register their aboveground storage tanks with the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection.

Tank registration is required by Oct. 1.

Officials say information provided during the registration process will be used to help determine where the biggest threats to public health and the environment are.

All storage containers with the capacity to hold at least 1,320 gallons of liquid, are at least 90 percent above ground and that are at a fixed location for 60 days must be registered.

Information that needs to be submitted includes data about tank contents, location and size, as well as the age of each tank and the material it is built from.
