-- Many new jersey home owners believe that if have a Home Inspection performed and a Oil tank sweep performed that is all they need to satisfy their " Due Diligence Requirements"
. However, if the tank was removed without a permit their still could be contaminated soil and ground water on site that the new buyer may be responsible for the remediation. Many horror stories have been documented in New Jersey where a new buyer purchases a property and then a year later receives a letter from a neighbors attorney that states that heating oil contamination from your property is entering their basement sump pump. Home inspections and a Oil tank sweeps using a metal detector can not identify current site contamination. Soil and ground water testing allows the buyer to know if heating oil or other contamination exists on the property that may cause problems down the road. Environmental Systems uses Ground Penetrating Radar to identify metallic and non metallic objects. It not unusual to
find abandoned dry wells and septic tanks during a oil tank sweep. Many New Jersey Municipalities require old septic tanks to be property closed or abandoned . This could cost $ 2000 or more. Other buried objects such as buried construction debris, old shingles, car parts and asbestos containing old appliances can be found buried on a property with Ground Penetrating Radar. Environmental Systems can tailor a cost effective sampling event that can identify unknown buried toxic contamination.
