Another oil tank removed and brought into State compliance.
See the photo showing the tank top cut open to allow us to clean out all of the bottom sludge. Notice that we have opened the tank without physically moving the tank. This ensures that the tank removal process does not cause slops or spills from the tank.
Careful planning and execution does make a difference. Some companies don’t wash the interior of the tank. Some companies don’t even pump the tank before removal.
Our Tank Closure Report proves that you conducted your removal properly and shows your future buyer that they have nothing to worry about.
Even when a tank is filled in-place because it is under a house foundation, it must first be cut open so that the sludge can be liquified and pumped out.
Once the tank is completely cleaned and emptied, it can be filled with concrete. This is the only way to give full structural support for the house foundation. Filling with sand is a waste of time and will not support the house foundation.
To close a tank in-place, permission must be given by the State's UST section.
This underground oil tank was removed at a small church built in the 1960's. It became a issue during the property transaction and was removed for the buyer after the closing.
Rather than letting the sellers do a half-way job, the buyers took a credit and did it right after they owned the property. After completing the removal and paperwork "by the book," we were able to acquire a "No Further Action" letter from the State.
The last photo is the area after the tank was removed, backfilled and raked smooth.
