The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (EDA) is no longer accepting new applications for the Petroleum Underground Storage Tank Remediation, Upgrade and Closure Program for non-leaking tanks. This means that NJ property owners in need of oil tank removal services will no longer receive funding from the state.
Although the funding is currently on hold, NJ property owners may still apply for funding by submitting an application that will be date stamped and held until, if and when, sufficient funds become available. For more information about the UST Fund, visit: http://www.nj.gov/dep/srp/finance/ustfund/
Property owners who are uncertain about whether or not an underground oil tank on their property needs to be removed should call The Entech Group for a free consultation.
Our Environmental Liability Assessment Program assesses the underground storage tank and offers advice and guidance to properly address all recognized environmental concerns, as well as a Summary of Findings letter for use and future submission to state governmental agencies, legal representatives and / or insurance representatives.
If a tank on your property is found to be an environmental concern, the Summary of Findings letter will be the basis to advance your oil tank removal project to a swift and successful conclusion.
We offer oil tank removal services in NJ as well as site remediation if a leak has occurred. NJ homes that are older than 15 years and still have the original underground oil tank are advised to have it inspected and removed.
An underground oil tank has the potential to contaminate soil and even drinking water if a leak occurs. A spill can contaminate groundwater affecting private wells, other nearby drinking water supplies, lakes, rivers and reservoirs. It is also not uncommon for the contamination to spread to neighboring properties.
Working with The Entech Group and our Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) can help the process of removing an oil tank be completed at an accelerated pace.
