Underground heating oil tanks exist on residential and commercial properties throughout New Jersey, but a significant portion are no longer in use. These tanks were once manufactured from highly corrosive materials and can eventually leak residual oil through corrosion holes. Leaking oil tanks often go undetected for years, leading to soil and water contamination, along with other environmental concerns. When this happens, it often results in lengthy and costly site remediation projects.
Remediation of impacted soil and groundwater due to oil tank leaks involves oil tank removal along with soil and groundwater testing in the surrounding areas to determine the extent of the contamination. This not only consists of disturbing your yard/landscaping but potentially removing portions of your hardscaping (i.e., walkways and driveway) as well as supporting the house itself.
If a tank begins to leak, the cost of soil and groundwater testing and remediation are significantly higher than only removing a tank. Prevent unwanted expenses by removing your underground oil tank before contamination issues arise. Contact us to learn more about oil tank removal in Monmouth County, NJ.
