If you’re worried about the presence of a buried oil tank on the property at your Somerset County home, you’re not alone. Many home and business owners across the state face the potential risks presented by old underground oil tanks. Though once a main heating source, these tanks are now inconveniences at best and a danger to the ecology at worst.
Corrosion is the main culprit in buried oil tanks. These older steel tanks were placed underground without any protection from the elements. The result has been extensive rusting and corrosion over the years. This typically leads to leakage and spills, which causes contamination of the ground around it and often the water as well.
Somerset County home buyers and sellers should check for the presence of an underground tank before purchasing a home or putting it on the market. Have a tank sweep performed if you don’t know whether a tank is buried on the property. Once you are aware of an underground oil tank, check for contamination through soil testing. This will help you plan for the amount of work that will be required when you have the tank removed.
