If you are buying a home in NJ and there is an Abandoned Heating oil tank be careful. These tanks were filled in place without any testing and may be leaking. Remediation may cost over $ 30000 to complete.
MOUNTAINSIDE, N.J. - April 21, 2018 - PRLog -- A filled in place oil tank is just as costly to remediate as a active tank if the tank leaked many years before it was abandoned. In the 1990's realtors were advising there clients to abandon there heating oil tanks in place to avoid the cost of costly remediation.  Many sellers have a Municipal "Approved Sticker" this sticker is for the fill in place construction code. If they did not take soil samples they did not complete the tank closure properly in eyes of the NJDEP. A Clean-up can cost over $ 30000 or more and new buyer could be on the hook for this if they don't complete their proper "Due Diligence" before purchase. Environmental Systems can collect samples around the tank to identify contaminations. With over 20 years experience Environmental Systems. Environmental Systems provides Oil tank sweeps/locating, tank removal and oil tank testing remediation services.
