Typically (85%) of the time there are tell-tale signs of an in-ground oil tank such as a visible vent and/or filler pipes. There may also be disconnected oil lines coming through the foundation wall which were the supply and return lines from the heating oil tank. You may also have a concrete channel that is visible in the basement floor that leads to the furnace area. Any of these physical signs usually indicates that a tank that has been removed or, in some cases there is still a tank in the ground. To be more certain hire an environmental professional who is trained to look for this evidence as well as other key signs and who can also be equipped with a metal detector and a radio frequency locator or ground penetrating radar unit to evaluate a property for a suspect tank (UST).

If you have an underground home heating oil tank installed at a residential property, your tank is exempt from Federal Regulations. Should a home heating oil tank release oil into the environment, then at that point the owner of the tank is no longer exempt from the provisions of environmental regulation governing uncontrolled discharges or releases into the environment. At the time it is discovered that an oil tank has leaked, the property owner would need to take reasonable measurements to address the source of the leak/spill and prevent it from spreading and the incident reported to the appropriate agency. In New Jersey the governing agency is the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, (NJDEP) not the Environmental Protection Agency, (EPA) which is a Federal agency and does not have immediate jurisdiction for these types of incidents. If a heating oil discharge has occurred at your home, regardless of the quantity, the owner is required to report the leak to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). Call the NJDEP’s toll free 24 hour Environmental Action Hot Line at 1-877-WARN DEP (1-877-927-6337) as soon as a leak is discovered. After discovery of the tank leak, a subsurface investigation (soil borings and testing) would have to be completed and contingent on the petroleum levels appropriate corrective action (i.e., cleanup/remediation) would need to be initiated to address the tank leak.

http://www.petrojerseyindustries.com/ Corrosion is caused by the inherent tendency of iron based metals to rust. When and how fast steel turns to rust is dependent on a wide variety of variables such as physical location of the tank, the thickness of the tank, amount of water in the tank, age of the tank , soil moisture, pH acidity, back fill material, and any etching or damage occurring during the tank’s installation. 1-800 707 2022
