Should I have my underground oil tank removed or abandoned-in-place (filled)? Click here for an answer
Provided your underground tank has not leaked, both methods are acceptable to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) and most municipal authorities. However, as a stipulation for continued homeowner insurance coverage, it is becoming common for insurance companies to require underground oil storage tanks to be tank tested or more commonly – removed.

Since we understand this situation may be somewhat stressful to the homeowner, we take time to sit down with our customers and thoroughly explain the step-by-step process required. In this regard, we will also act as a liaison as needed to assist in working with your insurance carrier.
If it has been found that your underground tank has leaked, you will be assigned a case # by the NJDEP. A NJDEP-approved contractor (Anderson Environmental) will be required to perform any necessary remediation.
Once the Subsurface Evaluator has determined remediation work has been completed as evidenced by satisfactory soil sampling, a Remedial Action Report will be compiled and provided to you for submittal to the NJDEP. Upon review and acceptance by the NJDEP, a “No Further Action” (NFA) letter will be issued, thus closing the case.
As the homeowner, you have the option of waiting to have any remediation work performed; however, the case # will remain open until such work is completed.

Generally, after signing the contract, we can perform the tank removal in about 1-1/2 to 2 weeks. The tank removal work is performed in 1-day.

Even if your underground oil storage tank had been “officially” abandoned-in-place in the past, most realtors will advise you to take the measure of having your underground tank removed. Additionally, it has become more common for a buyer’s attorney to insist that any underground tanks be removed prior to real estate closing. Knowing your oil tank has been removed and any environmental issues have been remedied will make “clear-sailing” for selling your home.
