Oil Tank Removal

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.

Complete Heating Oil Tank Removal

Inevitably, your heating oil tank will reach the end of its lifespan. When that day comes, you can trust the team at Environmental Works in Portland, OR to provide professional heating oil tank removal services. Our team will use their expertise to ensure that your heating oil tank is properly decommissioned, excavated, and recycled.

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.
