Ranking of Environmental Contaminated Sites to Affect Oil Tank Removal in NJ

Entech Group, Inc., a leader in environmental and oil tank removal services in NJ, has confirmed that the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) will be launching a new ranking system that places environmentally contaminated sites into one of five categories and thereby ranks them from best to worst. Rankings will be based on public health and safety.

All sites will be ranked, except for those involving (a) homeowner heating oil tanks of 2,000- gallons or less, (b) sites for which the NJDEP’s Bureau of Operations and Maintenance Monitoring is overseeing long-term operations and (c) sites with unknown sources. Scoring factors include the contaminants present at a site, whether they are located in soil and/or groundwater, the proximity of receptors (such as drinking water wells) and the distance/pathway between the site and any identified receptors.

Properties in need of environmental and oil tank removal services in NJ should be prepared to act quickly in 2012. After scoring, the NJDEP will determine whether a site is being actively handled by the responsible party. All recipients will be given 60 days in which to provide feedback on the scoring, using a specially developed NJDEP web portal.

Now is the time to enlist the experience and knowledge of Entech, NJ oil tank removal specialists with over 20 years of site remediation experience and service.
