Oil Tank Removal in Newark, Montclair, East Orange and more…
Are you selling a home in Essex County or looking to purchase one here? Are you worried about soil contamination from an underground oil tank on your property? Perhaps you’re considering converting from oil to gas. At ERC Environmental, LLC, we are seasoned pros in providing all these vital services, and more, for residential and commercial properties.
Underground oil tank storage is still a concern in Essex County – especially towns including Newark, Montclair, East Orange, and West Orange – and throughout the state. The issue is most prevalent for older properties. This is largely due to the material that was once used for buried oil tanks. Bare steel fabrication was common a few decades ago.
Unfortunately, these tanks have not weathered well over the years. Corrosion has been a common byproduct of these basic steel tanks. The standard 275-gallon tanks really weren’t meant to be buried. And larger tanks that were designed for underground storage also present hazards if sufficient corrosion protection methods weren’t applied.
Other influences, like tank design, area moisture, and soil type can have impact, as well. These varying contributing factors are part of the reason it’s difficult to determine whether a tank will leak. But whether it’s slow, small seepage or large leakage, contamination is a serious threat. This makes removal the safest option.
