Tank Services

If you live in New Jersey, there is a good chance you have an oil fueled heater as well as a storage tank for the heating oil. There are a number of reasons why you would want to have a professional come out and look at the tank. Over time, these tanks can corrode and begin to leak and you need help locating and replacing the tank, or you may be looking into switching over to a natural gas heating system, no matter the reason, we've got a team of experts who can help you locate your underground oil tank and help determine the best course of action to replace or remove the tank.

Tank Locating

Using a magnetometer, we will perform an oil tank sweep on your property and in the area around your home. The magnetometer will pick up any of the components of the tank which allows us to detect the locations of any underground oil tank, buried oil lines, tank vent, or fill lines in the area. The magnetometer is able to scan through any materials around the building including soil, concrete, and asphalt. It is important to use a good locating device to ensure that all parts of the tank or tanks are found and to accurately determine the next course of action.

Tank Investigation

A tank investigation and inspection helps us determine the condition of the existing tank and provide an initial evaluation of the soil. Our tank investigation is thorough and if we find any problems or any existing leaks, we will provide the results of our investigation in a letter of findings. The results will also come with recommendations for next steps. If we find issues with the tank, we may recommend a combination of soil testing as well as remediation.

Tank Removal

Meridian specializes in underground storage tank (UST) and above ground storage tank (AST) removals for both residential and commercial properties. The tank removal process can be overwhelming and it must be completed following certain regulation. This is why we have an educated staff to offer guidance and answer any questions that you may have along the way.

  • An initial site visit is done to inspect the property prior to issuing a proposal.
  • Once proposal is signed, permits are obtained and filed with the town, and Utility Mark-Out is called in to NJ One Call.
  • The UST will then be removed and inspection will be performed by a City/Township Inspector.
