Heating Oil Tank Removal
In order to pass home inspection, it is mandatory to have that old heating oil tank removed from your property. These old and decrepit tanks pose a variety of health and safety risks, and are a real threat to the environment due to the fact that they may have corroded over the years, enabling the leeching of hazardous chemicals into the groundwater.
Please note that before removal can occur, certain permits will be required from your city and county due to the volatile nature of old oil tanks. Feel free to get in touch with Kevin Stokes Excavating so we can help guide you through the process of getting that old oil tank out and your home up to code.
Plus, remediation measures are included in the excavation, so you won’t have to worry about any hazardous chemicals that may have already leaked from the tank and into the ground.
Septic System Services
In some cases complete excavation and removal of the old septic tank may be the only or desired course of action. In other instances the septic system can be brought up to compliance with current codes by way of minor repairs. Either way, permits from local and county authorities are required to have the work completed. Give us a call or send us an email so we can help you start the process.
There are times when major repairs or a whole new septic system will be the proper or desired course of action. Again, special permits will be required for such work, and new systems will need to be designed by an engineer before installation procedures can begin.
Any necessary remediation measures are included in the excavation, so you won’t have to worry about any hazardous chemicals that may have already leaked from the tank and into the ground.
