UNDERGROUND OIL TANKS
WHY ARE UNDERGROUND OIL TANKS REMOVED
Frequently, people that contact New England Environmental Services, Inc. are unaware of the hazards that accompany an underground fuel oil storage tank (UST) on their property. UST's degrade over time and are subject to developing holes which may cause the leaking of heating oil into surrounding soil. Age, combined with other factors like the material and design of the tank, type of soil, and amount of moisture in the area of the tank, contribute to the likelihood of developing holes. Leakage into the soil is a serious and potentially costly problem. If you are aware that there is an old underground oil tank on your property, you may want to consider removal. There are other reasons to consider UST removal:
If you are selling your home it will likely be required that you remove your underground tank from the property. Most mortgage companies, home inspectors, and closing attorneys will not complete a real estate transaction while an underground tank exists on the property. If you are unsure if there is an underground tank on your property, it is likely you will be required to perform a tank sweep to confirm none exist on the property.• If you are converting to gas. Many towns in the State of New York require you to obtain a permit for oil tank removal prior to gas conversion to ensure you will remove the prior oil system from the property.
ABOVE GROUND OIL TANKS
New England Environmental Services, Inc. is able to perform above ground oil tank installs. Be assured that you will receive an excellent, expedient and professional install. We install new above ground storage tanks (AST) in sizes ranging from 138 gallon, 275 gallon, and 330 gallon in both horizontal and vertical styles, along with any size ROTH tank.
OIL TANK ABANDONMENT
New England Environmental Services, Inc. will obtain permit for customers and arrange for inspection by town officials. New England Environmental Services will squeegee clean and use oil absorbent wipes to clean the interior of the tank. With professional equipment, we will remove the fill and vent pipes and cut or crimp supply/return lines. The tank is removed and disposed of at a local scrap yard. After disposal, we forward the necessary paperwork to the township to close out the permit.
