Oil Tank Removal | Blair Inspection Services NJ
This is a picture of a 1000-gallon oil tank. Fortunately, this one was not rusted and was removed without problems. Oil heating was primarily used in Essex County for heating houses. Most houses were refitted with natural gas in the 1970’s. In and around Essex County there are numerous houses with oil tanks still in the ground.
Often times, oil tanks are buried under driveways or front lawns, leaving them susceptible to time and water, which degrades the tanks and they rust and release oil into the soil. The results can be a potentially large environmental hazard with significant cleanup costs. If the new buyer overlooks/ ignores this hazard, this potential hazard becomes the new homeowner’s responsibility.
