Essex County Oil Tank Removal

If your tank was installed before 1980, you could be in trouble.

You’ve lived in Bloomfield since the seventies, raised a family and now enjoy a comfortable life with neighbors you know well.

Maybe you’re a newlywed couple looking at property in West Orange or Belleville.

Well, if a house in these towns or any close neighborhoods has an Essex County oil tank on its property installed in 1980 or before, it could be leaking chemicals into the soil, air and groundwater.

These old tanks are built of bare steel fabrication and are susceptible to corrosion… and corrosion leads to spills and leaks.

Whether the tank is an UST (underground storage tank) above it or in a place inaccessible, removal, clean-up (remediation) or abandonment (cutting, opening and cleaning the tank then filling it with inert materials) should only ever be done by an experienced crew. If you are looking to sell-or buy-your home, your tank removal might be a pressing issue as well.
