Frequently Asked Questions
When to Remove an Underground Storage Tank
Underground storage tanks have limited life spans. Over time underground storage tanks holding oil, gasoline, diesel, etc., begin to rust and corrode, ultimately leaking into the ground and posing a significant threat to the environment. A leaking tank can seep under the foundation of a home or building, onto a neighbors property, or into the groundwater. Being proactive and removing the tank before the end of it’s life span can result in a removal that costs significantly less than waiting until it’s too late.
When Do You Need To Replace An Aboveground Storage Tank?
To ensure optimal lifespan of your oil tank it must be maintained adequately. If so, on average the life expectancy of above ground tanks is about 20 years or more. If not maintained they may not last 20 years.
When do you need soil remediation?
Generally, soil should be tested every 3 to 5 years. If at risk and there is a concern for contamination from heavy metals, pesticides, petroleum hydrocarbons and radioactive material remediation must be done.
