You may want to check NFPA 407 and NFPA 30. I believe the vents are required to be 12 ft. above grade even though the tank is only 8 ft. high.

Subject: CAA: Mutual Help List, Above Ground Fuel Tanks
Is anyone here familiar with an interpretation of the FAR 77 or any other ordinances that could help us prevent the installation of an above ground fuel tank system about 50 ft outside an RPZ yet only 8'tall. It seems to be with in the guidelines (below approach surfaces), however it is uncomfortably close if there was to be a short landing.
