Section 175.250 Marine Motor Fuel Dispensing Facilities
a) Marine motor fuel dispensing facilities shall be of the attended type only. Self-service is prohibited.
b) No vessel or marine craft shall be made fast to any other vessel or marine craft occupying a berth at a fuel dispensing location during fueling operations.
c) Smoking materials, including matches and lighters, shall not be used within 20 feet of areas used for fueling, servicing fuel systems for internal combustion engines, or receiving or dispensing Class I liquids.
d) The fuel delivery nozzle shall be put into contact with the vessel fill pipe before the flow of fuel commences and this bonding contact shall be continuously maintained until fuel flow has stopped to avoid possibility of electrostatic discharge.
e) At all marinas, clearly identified emergency stops that are readily accessible in case of fire or physical damage at any dispensing unit shall be provided on each marine wharf and located at least 20 feet but not more than 100 feet from each dispenser, or at a location as approved by OSFM. The emergency stops shall be interconnected to shut off power to all dispenser and submersible pump motors from any individual location. Each emergency stop shall be identified by an approved sign on all-weather materials stating "EMERGENCY STOP" in 2 inch red capital letters. Resetting from an emergency stop activation shall require manual intervention by the owner or attendant and shall be accomplished only after the condition that caused the activation has been corrected. A master electrical shutoff means an emergency stop.
f) All emergency stops shall be tested and all shear valves visually inspected at least annually to ensure that they are functioning properly and that the dispenser is mounted properly. Documentation of annual emergency stop testing and shear valve inspection shall be kept at the motor fuel dispensing facility and available for examination by a representative of OSFM. If documentation of annual testing of emergency stops is not available, the facility shall be subject to demonstration of this equipment during inspection by OSFM.
g) Minimum Signage. A conspicuous sign shall be made of all-weather material with prominent letters not less than ⅞ inch high. The sign shall be mounted no higher than 10 feet above the dispenser base, or at a height approved by OSFM, and shall be visible in all directions, stating "No dispensing by anyone other than the attendant".
h) Fire Extinguishers. Fire extinguishers shall be provided in accordance with 41 Ill. Adm. Code 174.350.
i) Spill containment shall be provided on docks adjacent to dispensers to contain spills that may occur during the filling of approved portable containers. Portable containers of 6 gallons or less shall be filled on the dock where spill containment is provided.
