Whether you own a residential or commercial property, it’s important to know that old underground oil tanks can be dangerous and damaging to the environment. Old tanks begin to leak if left in place which could contaminate the property and cost thousands to clean up. That’s why underground tank removals make sense for property owners and CERC Tank Removal can help!
CERC is pleased to offer the following services:
Ideal for: closing in-place, underground tanks.
CERC Tank Removal pumps heating oil out of your underground storage tank and triple-rinses the tank. Structural foam, sand, or cement slurry is then put into the tank. The fill and vent pipes are cut off or capped. Once complete, your property earns a Decommissioning Certificate.
Permanent Tank Removal
Ideal for: property owners who want their underground oil tank gone once and for all.
Our crews at CERC Tank Removal show the greatest respect for your yard while pumping any remaining heating oil out of your tank. Trained crews carefully hand-dig or machine excavate to remove the underground storage tank before transporting it to an approved site, where it’s cut, cleaned and scrapped according to the highest environmental standards.
Once the oil tank is removed, our crews can backfill and compact the hole. After the hole is filled we can restore the area with ground cover, sod or both. Many customers prefer permanent tank removal because they never have to worry about their underground oil tank again. Once complete, your property earns a Decommissioning Certificate.
Above Ground Tank Removal
Ideal for: property owners who want their oil tank gone once and for all.
The above ground oil tank is pumped out, and removed. The tank is then transported to an approved site, where it’s cut, cleaned and scrapped according to the highest environmental standards.
CERC Tank Removal obtains all required permits and provides all needed decommissioning or closure reports.
Soil Samples/ Soil Testing
Soil samples are performed by auguring down or geo-probing and retrieving a sample from under or next to the underground storage tank. The soil samples are then delivered to an independent fully accredited analytical testing laboratory that will provide a written report on the results.
Contaminated Soil Remediation
If test results from soil samples show petroleum contamination, you may need a site clean-up. With careful attention to environmental standards, contaminated soil will be excavated and removed from your site and disposed of at an approved facility. Fresh soil replaces your newly cleaned yard. Bio-remediation might also be a viable option to address soil contamination.
