Gas station tank removal can be a complicated process because of the many environmental hazards. With increasing concern for the environment, the federal government has placed more regulations on fuel station owners, requiring them to remove and replace older fuel storage systems. In addition, most states now require the removal of any abandoned gas tanks located at a site.
While every project is different, here is a simple outline of the storage tank removal process:
- A pump truck will pump out all contents of the old fuel storage tank
- The contents will be transferred or disposed to meet all EPA regulations.
- The fuel storage tank will be opened and cleaned on-site and the surrounding area will be inspected for contamination.
- For older gas tanks that are more likely to have leaked, a thorough soil and groundwater sampling should be done before any underground tank removal.
We are happy to discuss your needs and explain the complete process as well as addressing any concerns you may have.
