Why remove your underground storage tank?

As an old saying in the tank community goes, "there are two types of tanks in this world; the tanks that leaked and the tanks that haven't leaked YET!" All steel tanks rust over time, which can lead to soil and/or groundwater contamination. The State of New Jersey's Department of Environmental Protection requires homeowners to take prompt action on identifying a potential release and essentially completing any remedial action.

Some signs indicating a potential leak has occurred from your tank include...

• Fuel oil odors
• Problems with your oil burner
• Water detected in your tank
• Unexplained increase in fuel oil consumption and/or delivery

How do I find an underground tank on a property?

Don't assume that because a property is currently heated by electric or natural gas that it wasn't at one time heated by oil. You can make some visual inspections on the property to try and locate an underground storage tank yourself before calling in a professional.

• Look for a fill pipe and/or a ventilation pipe around the house. Don't forget to look for the old coffee can covering the fill port to the tank.
• Look for old copper lines and/or concrete patching on walls in the basement and/or crawlspace of the house.
• Look for depressed vegetation. Small patches of depressed vegetation are sometimes indicators as to where tanks were filled and overfill occurred.
• Check the local municipality for any records or permits for the property.
