How do I know that my tank is leaking?

Once a Homeowner or Business owner decides to remove their heating oil underground storage tank their biggest fear is that the tank has leaked into the Soil and potentially Ground Water.  The anticipation of wonder if the tank is intact or leaking can be overwhelming for some.  The only certain way to determine if there is a need for Soil Remediation is to remove the tank and inspect for leakage.

When privately owned land is known to be contaminated with chemical pollutants, environmental law holds the property owner responsible for cleaning up the contamination, a process known as remediation. Learn more about soil remediation in this post from Care Environmental Remediation Services, based in Northwestern New Jersey.

What if my tank leaked?

Whether we removed your tank or it was removed by others, C.E.R.S. will evaluate the environmental impact to determine the best course of action. Did you know that not all leaking tanks require soil remediation? Sometimes soil sampling of the tank grave can satisfy the New Jersey requirements of the Heating Oil Tank System Remediation Rules. Reporting of the tank removal and soil investigation will be required for the No Further Action letter; however, the cost as compared to remediation is much less.

What if soil remediation is required?

C.E.R.S. team consists of environmental professionals and equipment operators to perform soil remediation projects seamlessly.

We will handle your remediation from start to finish beginning with

  • Project planning
  • Excavation and disposal
  • Verification sampling/testing
  • Backfilling and restoration

If a ground water investigation is needed, we will take care of that too. C.E.R.S. will handle the manifesting of soil disposal, review and evaluate laboratory data for reliability, manage all remediation documentation such as

  • Remedial Action Report
  • NJDEP UHOT Forms
  • NJDEP SRRA Forms

We will provide the report to our customer and take time to review the report together. When our customer is ready, we will also submit the report to the NJDEP on their behalf for the No Further Action letter or prepare the Response Action Outcome letter.
