South Jersey homes still operate using home heating oil with oil tanks can be located above ground, in a basement, or buried underground on a property. What this means is in the event that a tank containing this fuel oil begins to fail, a homeowner is faced with the need to remove or abandon this oil tank and install a new one or convert the property to another source of home fuel (i.e., natural gas).
In the state of New Jersey, as a homeowner you are required to take action if your South Jersey oil tank discharges (leaks), regardless of the location of the tank. Oil tanks are a great source for heating your home or hot water, but can be subject to rust and leak over time. If you are in need of removing an oil tank on your South Jersey property, feel free to inquire on this process. We love to talk to homeowners!
In rare situations an oil tank on your South Jersey property may also need to be "abandoned in place". This is done only as a last resort when the option of removal becomes a problem with the surrounding structure or is determined to be not feasible for safety reasons. Should that situation occur, additional testing is needed to determine and meet certain criteria. And this does not limit the possibility of still requiring a leak to be remediated (cleaned up). This process is often more expensive than regular oil tank removal, but may be necessary in some situations.
Township Permits will be applied for, picked up, and paid for with all South Jersey oil tank removal or abandonments.
If you're told that the oil tank that was removed years does not mean that it didn't leak (release). So be sure to ask for paperwork or read about our Oil Tank Sweep (Locating) services to help you make an informed, educated decision on proceeding with any South Jersey oil tank process.
