Oil Storage Tank Removal vs Abandonment

In Place Oil Tank Abandonment

The NJDEP and most towns still allow tanks to be abandoned (filled) in place. In this scenario, we drain and thoroughly clean the tank while leaving the tank in the ground. The tank is then filled with inert fill. Pros: Abandonment is a more simple process. This may be a more appropriate method if the tank is located under expensive surface treatment. Cons: Even though proper protocol was used in the process, there is a small possibility that hidden environmental issues may remain present. When you decide to sell your home, it may be considered a “second choice” if the tank is still in the ground.

Oil Tank Removal

Oil Tank Removal: In this scenario, the tank is emptied of product, thoroughly cleaned and entirely removed from the ground. Pros: Any possible environmental issues are addressed and remedied. This provides peace of mind for the Owner and will make your home more “attractive” to a prospective Buyer. Cons: Excavation of a larger area is required. Slightly higher cost than tank abandonment.
