Why remove your underground storage tank?

An underground storage tank leak can create havoc for business owners and homeowners alike.   Over time underground storage tanks holding oil, gasoline, diesel, etc., begin to rust and corrode causing this leak 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 which can create an expensive clean-up.

This makes underground storage tanks a liability to business owners and homeowners alike. These risks are well-known to mortgage lenders and insurance companies, so ultimately, if you are buying or selling a property with a buried storage tank it may become necessary to get it removed.  Even USTs that had been previously “properly abandoned” are being required to be removed by most lenders.

What UST Removal Entails

Mob To Site

We arrive at the site on the scheduled date with the necessary labor, equipment and PPE.  We saw cut and remove asphalt or concrete when necessary and then excavate down to the top of the UST.

Remove and Dispose of Tank Contents

We will pump out and place the tank contents into 55 gallon drums for smaller amounts.  For larger amounts a vac truck is used to pump out any liquid in the tank.

Cleaning The Tank

The solid waste oil on the bottom “sludge” is unable to be pumped.  The sludge is cleaned out manually and placed into 55 gallon drums for disposal.

Remove Tank & Inspect

The tank will be removed from the excavation and inspected by the township inspector for any signs of corrosion or holes.  If it passes, onto backfilling, if it fails a case is called into the DEP and our subsurface evaluator / LSRP comes out to oversee the contaminated soil remediation process.

Fill Excavation

Once approval has been granted by the township to backfill the hole, we truck in certified clean fill and backfill the excavation with compaction.  This prevents future settling whether it’s a grassy area, under a driveway, sidewalk or parking lot.

Surface Restoration

We complete the project by restoring the ground on top of the excavation to it’s original condition.  Rake, hay and seed for grassy areas, asphalt restoration for driveways and parking lots, concrete restorations for sidewalks or slabs.
