Portland Oil Tank Removal
When an Underground Heating Oil Tank Is Present It Must Be Decommissioned. EWorks Will Get the Job Done Right.
If an underground heating oil tank is discovered, it must be legally decommissioned. Decommissioning is the removal of an underground heating oil tank from operation by an approved method of the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (ODEQ).
There are two approved heating oil tank decommission methodologies:
Abandonment in Place
When your heating oil tank is nearing the end of its lifetime or no longer serves a useful purpose, it may be time for decommission. When the conditions are right, abandonment in place is an adequate solution for your tank. When you partner with our team, we will make sure that the tank is professionally decommissioned, cleaned thoroughly, and filled with inert material.

An Environmental Site Assessment must be conducted to determine if a contamination event has occurred. This includes soil testing and possibly the testing of soil gas in the home. If contamination is detected, exceeding confirmed release levels, the decommissioning elevates to a clean-up project. The scope of environmental clean-up projects range from the determination that remaining contamination would not pose a human health or ecological risk to the complete excavation of all contaminated soil.
