Underground Storage Tank (UST) Removals
soil testing, Environmental Remediation, Underground Storage Tank
CommTank has been providing underground storage tank (UST) removals, underground tank closures-in-place, and UST replacement services in New England since 1994. We've successfully removed underground tanks for thousands of businesses ranging from 500 to 30,000-gallon tanks. When comparing services, there are many benefits to hiring an experienced underground tank removal company. A properly removed underground tank can expedite real estate transactions, 21E Site Assessments, and remove the UST record from the states database. We follow Massachusetts 527 CMR 9.0 K for underground tank removals, and 310 CMR 40 for the assessment of soils around the tank. Our environmental technicians take samples from the excavation sidewalls, pit bottom, and areas surrounding removed piping. A lab analysis of the soil can be provided if needed, and all waste generated during the removal is properly disposed of using a hazardous waste manifest. We provide a detailed tank closure report and submit an UST FP-290R form to the state and fire department so that your tank is on record as being removed.
Safety is our number one priority when removing underground storage tanks. Our employees are trained in OSHA Hazwoper and Confined Space Entry. We notify the local fire department in advance of every job, prepare confined space entry permits and health and safety plans, provide a dig-safe of the property and ensure that all fuel and chemical vapors are properly displaced before cutting and entering a tank.
We also provide UST closure-in-place services in the rare occasion that the building, walkways, utilities or other structures on site would be at risk of damage. After performing a site visit, your project manager will assess the costs, risks and provide a written recommendation for the best approach, and submit it to the fire department for approval. We offer underground tank replacement services in situations where space required for installing an aboveground tank is limited. Setbacks defined by fire safety codes for gasoline tanks, limited parking, or minimal site footprints are examples of circumstances that would justify the replacement of an underground tank with a new one.
CommTank is your source for reasonable pricing and a professional service. Protecting your property’s appearance is important to us and we promise to completely restore the site to its original condition.
