While underground oil storage tanks were the norm for home heating in the past, they are now an obsolete way of storing heating oil. Underground oil tanks can be a serious liability for homeowners, as they will eventually corrode and leak oil into the surrounding soil and groundwater, creating environmental problems that are the responsibility of the owner. If you have underground oil tanks on your property that you would like to remove, our company offers the best environmental services for you.
Brinks Tank Services has an experienced and professional team that will assist you every step of the way. We remove underground oil tanks, above ground oil tanks or oil tanks located in your basement. We also have technicians on staff to perform oil tank scans to locate any buried oil tanks. It's important to keep in mind that even if a tank is not currently leaking, it will likely leak at some point. If you are in possession of the property at the time which a leak is discovered, you are liable for the costs necessary to remediate the issue. If you are concerned about possible oil tanks located in or under your property, you should select the most competent environmental services in New Jersey! Give us a call today and schedule a consultation.
If your property is in need of an oil tank sweep, then call on us. An oil tank sweep utilizes an inductive metal detector to look for buried metallic objects which match the profile of an underground heating oil storage tank. Brink’s also offers Ground Penetrating Radar to assess areas of concern or to evaluate those areas which inhibit the use of metal detectors. Contact us today to learn more about oil tank sweeps or to request a quote for your oil tank project.
In order to remove an oil tank, the tank is excavated, cut, clean, removed and the remaining cavity backfilled with certified clean materials. Should the tank be found to be leaking, Brink’s has technicians on site to obtain soil samples to determine the extent of the contamination. Make an appointment to speak with us in detail about the process and importance of oil tank removal.
Should contamination be present as a result of a leaking oil tank, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection mandates that the area be assessed and any soil whose oil content surpasses the state threshold be removed and properly disposed of. Brink’s Tank & Environmental Services staffs a team of Licensed Site Remediation Professionals who run our remediation jobs, allowing Brink’s to conduct the entirety of the process in-house, saving you time, money, and hassle. Call us today to inquire further about the soil remediation process and schedule a consultation.
