Oil Tank Services: Removal, Installation and Soil Remediation
Issues with underground oil tanks plague many Hudson County, New Jersey residents and business owners. These large steel tanks were once a preferred heating method throughout the state. Unfortunately, they weren’t built to withstand the test of time. Indeed, we perform many oil tank removals in Jersey City, North Bergen, and other nearby towns.
Rust and corrosion are inescapable problems for these steel vats that have been exposed to the elements for decades. This is simply the nature of iron-based metals, and the salty sea air in New Jersey can be especially corrosive.
When these oil tanks inevitably corrode, it leads to holes, and leakage occurs. This presents many environmental concerns and issues. Buried oil tank leakage can cause dangerous soil contamination. As a property owner, you are open to liability for the damage that a leaking oil tank causes on your land.
