Underground Storage Tank Removal as an Environmental Service
Anderson removes the entire tank and related piping from the ground. Chiefly because removal of your underground oil storage tank from the perspective of a home buyer is the method of preference.
This provides an analysis of the soil surrounding your tank and is a reflection of the integrity of the tank itself– Because realtors, you, homebuyers– everyone wants peace of mind; soil testing provides it.
Soil and Water Remediation
During the course of tank removal or tank abandonment, it is sometimes found that the tank has leaked. When this happens, our qualified staff at Anderson will present a thorough plan for ground or water remediation.
Abandoning Your Oil Tank
Abandoning your tank means leaving your Anderson clean tank underground. Provided the tank has maintained its structural integrity, we clean the tank and visually inspect the tank before filling it with inert material where the tank remains in place.
If it is found that the ground water has been contaminated, NJDEP regulations must be followed. Anderson is certified in these remediation procedures. It is common for the homeowner’s insurance company to become involved if ground water is contaminated, whom Anderson will work with during this phase.

Oil Tank Testing
Testing is sometimes done for insurance purposes or prior to selling your home. Tank testing is done using an acoustic ultrasonic EZY 3 Locator Plus. The test is capable of detecting any leakage below or above the liquid level as well as all associated piping. You are provided a preliminary report report the same day and a written report within five business days.
