If it has been found that your underground tank has leaked, you will be assigned a case # by the NJDEP. A NJDEP-approved contractor will be required to perform any necessary remediation. 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.
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.
