Tank TV Episode 012 – Leaking Oil Tank! Cleanup Not Required.

In this episode of Tank TV, we removed a 550 gallon underground oil tank that failed the visual inspection by the township. This tank had obvious corrosion holes. After we investigated the soil directly below the tank, we found that the contamination was very minor. We recommended that our subsurface evaluator grab the required six samples so he could write the remedial action report requesting the NFA from the NJDEP. If you hire a tank removal contractor who only recommends a soil remediation when your oil tank fails the inspection, you need to get a second opinion. This client received their NFA letter within 10 days of the job being completed. Industry standard turn around is 30-45 days.
