Homes With Previously Abandoned Underground Storage Tanks in NJ on the Rise

The Entech Group, Inc., an energy, engineering and environmental company in New Jersey, has issued an alert to property owners, lawyers and real estate agents  about the increasing rate of abandoned underground storage tanks (UST) found in NJ. For the past twenty years, Entech has been a leading service provider for the proper removal and installation of storage tank systems.

oil-tank-removal-njNJ realtors should be aware that an abandoned underground oil tank could be a source of soil and ground water contamination.  Some abandoned oil tanks in NJ have been left with oil still inside, and under certain conditions, may have adverse affect on our environment.  Since the lifespan of an oil tank is only about 15 years, many of these older tanks face the risk of corrosion and deterioration.  This can also cause a potential cave-in or collapse.

According to the Entech Group Inc., of NJ, the issue of abandoned tanks doesn’t surface until a homeowner has an inspection conducted on the home. Unfortunately, these inspections are routinely performed one to two weeks before closing.  Many banks, homebuyers and insurance carriers will request oil tank removal before the sale of the home is final, which can cause significant delays.
