If you have an oil storage tank at your property, whether it is underground or above ground, it is susceptible to leaks throughout the course of time. If there have been any type of leak, we can perform testing of the soil around the tank to determine if there has been any discharge to the underlying soil as a professional soil test company. Soil testing companies should always be professional, experienced, and knowledgeable to carry out this important job effectively and without further harm to the environment or your property.
Testing of the soil is very important because it will let soil testing companies know if we need to perform any type of remediation after the soil testing has been performed. Whether you are looking to have soil testing completed for purchasing a new home or property, selling your home, new construction, farming, or just simply for peace of mind, it is important you always and only work with a professional soil testing company.
Our soil testing process is different for our soil testing company residential customers compared to commercial customers, and for good reason. If you have a commercial or industrial location, please visit our commercial environmental services page for more information on soil testing for commercial properties. These different properties have different needs when it comes to testing the soil, and our soil test company professionals will use different methods to ensure the best possible job.
• Performing soil borings with a hand held auger around the tank. This method of soil testing involves taking core samples out of the sediment around your tank area and property. A soil testing company professional performs this task with shallow sediment cores as not to damage your property while testing the soil. Soil borings are a testing procedure soil testing professionals perform in both residential and commercial properties.
• Physically inspecting the soil for oil odor and residue. After soil testings are performed via boring with a soil testing company professional, Meridian Environmental Services Inc. will physically inspect your Lacey, NJ soil with trained eyes and noses. After testing the soil, we will look for any physical signs of oil as well as odors that may be present in soil that has been contaminated.
• Collecting a soil sample for laboratory analysis by an New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) Certified Testing Lab. The final step in a soil test process is to collect soil samples and to send them off to soil testing company professionals with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to ensure findings. These laboratory analysis findings with a soil test company professional will directly affect what happens next in your soil test and soil remediation process.
"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."
