Remove environmental liability
Old or leaking Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) can be a major environmental liability. The BC Fire Code requires that when a UST is not in use, good engineering practice is used when removing, abandoning in place, or temporarily taking out of service, the UST.
As part of our site remediation services at NEXT Environmental, we offer expert removal of USTs from residential, commercial and industrial properties, including locations that are difficult to access.
Our safe tank removal services include evacuating contents, removing associated piping, and collecting samples to evaluate the presence or absence of contaminated land. If contamination is found, we can provide further environmental remediation services and a report including confirmation of tank removal to the Ministry of Environment.
Many services pull tanks without correct evaluation of soil, groundwater and vapours, leaving unsuspecting landowners with ongoing liability. Some companies even go so far as to provide “certificates of removal” which are worthless. Do it right the first time.
