Homeowner Oil Tanks

Once a Homeowner or Commercial Property 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.  Tank removals may be prompted by a real estate sale, a homeowner insurance renewal, a refinance, a gas conversion or a proactive decision to replace the tank with an above ground tank.  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.

And, what if your tank leaked?  Whether we removed your tank or it was done by another company, 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 and prepare the Remedial Action Report and NJDEP UHOT 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.

Soil remediation in New Jersey is regulated. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Is the regulatory body that establishes the rules and makes sure that they are followed. With 20years of experience we take the guess work out of the process and put you the property owner at ease. Let us do the leg work and provide you with the best service and peace of mind. Call today for all your Soil Remediation Needs

Commercial Tanks

Underground Storage Tanks located at a commercial property are regulated by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection except for heating oil tanks that are no greater than 2,000 gallons in size and used for the purpose of heating a building. The process of soil remediation is similar, except that as of May 2012, a Licensed Site Remediation Professional is needed to manage the project from the beginning.  Our staff LSRP will prepare and submit all the regulatory reporting requirements needed to comply with the rules.  Leaking regulated tanks begin with a soil investigation, and if contamination is determined; a remedial investigation and subsequently if necessary a remedial action will be required. C.E.R.S. team is well versed in the NJDEP SRP Guidance Documents and Rules and applies this knowledge to meet regulatory requirements at these sites.  Did you know that compliance averaging data is a way to meet the standards? Other remediation standard attainment methods are also available. Our staff LSRP will prepare the Response Action Outcome (RAO) when the project is complete. We welcome the opportunity to meet and discuss Soil Remediation options to meet your project’s needs.
