If you live in New Jersey, there is a good chance you have an oil fueled heater as well as a storage tank for that heating oil. There are a number of reasons why you may want to have a professional come out and look at the tank. Over time, these tanks can corrode, beginning to leak and leading you to need help locating and replacing the tank. Additionally, you may be looking into switching over to a natural gas heating system, and we've got a team of experts who can help you locate your underground oil tank and determine the best course of action to replace or remove the tank. Oil tank removal should be left only to the experienced professionals, like us at Meridian Environmental Services Inc. in Lacey, NJ.
Using a magnetometer, we will perform an oil tank sweep on your property and in the area around your home. An oil tank sweep helps our Lacey, NJ professionals to effectively carry out oil tank removal, removing your oil tank and all its parts with peace of mind. The magnetometer will pick up any of the components of the tank, which allows us to detect the locations of any underground oil tank, buried oil lines, tank vent, or fill lines in the area. Removal of an oil tank may involve various components depending on the system used. The magnetometer is able to scan through any materials around the building including soil, concrete, and asphalt. It is important to use a good locating device in oil tank sweeping and locating to ensure that all parts of the tank or tanks are found and to accurately determine the next course of action. With oil tank removal, a professional oil tank sweep is the only way to accurately gauge oil tank detection. Oil tank removal cost will depend on your tank and its components.
A tank investigation and inspection helps us determine the condition of the existing tank and provide an initial evaluation of the soil. Our tank investigation and tank sweep is thorough and if we find any problems or any existing leaks, we will provide the results of our investigation in a letter of findings. The results will also come with recommendations for next steps in the tank removal process. If we find issues with the tank, we may recommend a combination of soil testing as well as remediation. Tank investigation is performed after your oil tank sweep, and after tank locating has found all oil tank components.
Meridian specializes in underground storage tank (UST) and above ground storage tank (AST) removals for both residential and commercial properties. The oil tank removal process can be overwhelming, and it must be completed following certain regulations. This is why we have an educated staff to offer guidance and answer any questions that you may have along the way. Questions that involve oil tank removal cost, oil tank location finding, oil tank sweep, and oil tank removal as a whole are answered by our Meridian Environmental Services Inc. professionals.
An initial site visit is done to inspect the property before the oil tank sweep or oil tank removal, and prior to issuing a proposal.
Once proposal is signed, permits are obtained and filed with the town, and Utility Mark-Out is called in to NJ One Call.
The UST will then be removed and inspection will be performed by a City/Township Inspector.
If you have a leaking underground storage tank, it is possible to receive funding to assist in the remediation costs from New Jersey Economic Development Authority. Oil tank removal costs may be offset by this funding, allowing the oil tank removal to be more affordable for any budget. After your oil tank sweep or finding your oil tank location, you may be able to take advantage of these resources as needed.
"Three cheers for Meridian Environmental Services out of Toms River, NJ. Especially to Chris Delucca, Senior Project Manager and Owner, for all his help in the replacement of my faulty driveway. This is a TOP shelf company, who stands behind their work. I cannot say enough good things about this company and I highly recommend them should anyone need their services. We hear so many things about being ripped off… So here’s a compliment for the good guys"
"During the past several months your company, Meridian Environmental, has performed services for our client, Saturn of Toms River. As I am sure you are aware, this was a difficult time for our client since we were under contract to close title to the property as quickly as possible with AAA. The service which you and your company provided were invaluable. We appreciate your efforts and that of your company to perform all of the services required including the testing of the various wells in an expeditious manner. Your negotiations with the NJDEP went far beyond that which was anticipated in our client’s contract with you."
"The professionalism and expertise of the Meridian Employees was exceptional. To say it wasn’t an easy job is an understatement. They never missed an opportunity to ensure us that regardless how things looked, everything would be okay and it was from “start to finish”. A very hard working crew!"
"The work done by Meridian Environmental Services Inc. is unsurpassable. A Year ago, I had a huge hole in my property… today you would never know they had been there. From start to finish, everything was done in a carefule, professional manner."
