Get the job done right

Shore Systems Group is certified by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection for tank removal and abandonment activities. Our knowledgeable tank service specialists will point you towards the best possible solution.

Tank Removal

Oil Tank Services

Tank removal is usually the best option. We truly understand how stressful this operation can be. Tank removal involves following a specific protocol:

  • Uncovering and inspecting the UST.
  • Cleaning the tank of rust.
  • Emptying the tank.
  • Removing the tank.
  • Disposing of the tank in accordance with state standards.
  • Back filling of the area with certified clean fill material.

We take every care possible to ensure our tank removal procedures go smoothly and safely with you in mind.

Tank Abandonment

Oil Tank Abandonment

If removal is not an option, than abandonment may be available in areas where property and structural damage are potential issues. Residential and commercial underground storage tank (UST) abandonment can be the perfect solution to a potentially costly and hazardous problem. UST abandonment activities are conducted by:

  • Uncovering the tank and pumping any residual product utilizing a vacuum tanker truck.
  • Thoroughly cleaning the tank in accordance with state standards.
  • Filling the tank with clean sand fill.
  • Finally, the excavation is then back filled to grade.

FAQs

Question: Why should my underground tank be removed?

Answer: All steel tanks rust over time, which can lead to soil or groundwater contamination. The State of New Jersey’s Department of Environmental Protection requires homeowners to take prompt action identifying a potential release and essentially completing any remedial action. Signs of a potential tank lead include:

  • Fuel oil odors
  • Problems with your oil burner
  • Water detected in your tank
  • Unexplained increase in fuel oil consumption
