BERNARDSVILLE, N.J. - July 10, 2019 - PRLog -- Today sand filling and abandoning in place a heating oil tank is a liability . Many home buyers will not purchase a property until the tank is removed. Although many abandoned in place tanks were sand filled with a municipal permit, many were completed without a permit. the tanks that were legally completed never were required to do soil sampling. Many of these filled in place tank were leaking and the contamination may still exist after 30 years.
