BASKING RIDGE, N.J.

-- New Jersey homeowners with leaking oil tanks should be cautious about how the property is remediated. In 2009 the NJDEP adopted new remediation standards that went from 10,000 PPM to 5,100 PPM. The method of anlaysis was also changed to determine concentration using the Extractable Petroleum Hydrocarbon(
EPH) method. Many contractors perfroming remediation in New Jersey do not realize the importance of establishing a significant " Clean Zone". If the NJDEP decides to reduce contamination levels of petroelum hydrocarbons a order of magnetude remediations completed today may not meet these new standards. If you purchased a heating oil contaminated property that was remediated to the old standards, you may be required to complete addiitional remediation although the property may have recieved a NJDEP' "No Further Action" letter. Environmental Systems recomends that all property buyers testi soil and ground water to determine current contamination levels. In 2009 some homeowners that remediated your properties in 1998 were required to clean-up their properties a second time after the oil tank remediation was reviewed by the buyers consultant. Environmental Systems a statewide environmental contractor established in 1993 provides homeowners with a remediation "Piece of Mind" . All leaking oil tank remediation project soils are remediated to a " Clean Zone" and ground water is tested to determine impact to ground water. Remediation projects completed by Environemntal Systems are remediate to high standards insuring that remediation completed today will mee future remediation standards.
