This sort of question would probably go better at city-data.com in the
New Hampshire forum.

Or the OP can just ask his neighbors.

try nh.general, but don't expect much. i don't know anyone that owns
their tanks. i suspect that the EPA frowns on underground tanks, or at
least underground oil tanks are not allowed. and why do you need *2*
1000 gallon tanks anyway?

I don't know about what regulations apply here, but leakage of LP gas is far
less of a danger than leakage of diesel. Propane tends to find its way into the
atmosphere, not the ground water. It's for exactly this reason that I used to
specify LP generators rather than diesel for my (then) employer's
installations. Especially the one that was right next to the settling basin for
the city's water plant!

Propane is not oil, and propane tanks may be buried.
The regulations that apply have to do with local permitting and that
is where the OP should check, if he needs to.
