There is a new State Law Massachusetts Chapter 453 Homeowner Heating Safety to help the homeowner and protect the environment.
The law requires that older unprotected oil lines to above ground storage tanks be upgraded with a continuous non metallic sleeve or an oil safety value.
The law also requires the insurance companies offer homeowners the opportunity to purchase additional insurance to aid in oil spill remediation. This insurance IS NOT mandatory of homes heated by oil.
