Oil Tank Commercial Services

Oil/Water Separator Cleaning

For maximum efficiency anyone who operates an oil/water separator unit should have it cleaned on a regular basis. Our complete cleaning services include:

  • Underground or above ground systems
  • Cylindrical or rectangular separators
  • Sludge removal
  • Coalescer (filter) removal and cleaning (or replacement)

Acid Waste Neutralization Tank Cleaning

These tanks are often found in facilities that discharge acidic waste such as laboratories, hospital, research facilities, and schools. If not treated these wastes can physically damage a building’s plumbing system as well as the environment.

The Neutralization Tank is positioned so that acidic waste is collected and passed through this tank prior to discharging into the general sewer system. The waste is chemically neutralized using limestone. The limestone breaks down over time and needs to be replaced at a maximum of every two years. Disregarded tanks can generate bacteria growth and cause foul odors. Regular tank cleanings are inexpensive compared to the cost of repairing damaged plumbing systems.

Hazardous and Non Hazardous Waste Disposal

For properties with larger quantities of chemicals left behind that require disposal we can help. We can arrange for the disposal of:

  • Waste Oil
  • Paint
  • Antifreeze
  • Fluorescent light bulbs
  • Mystery Drums and more

Phase I & II

The purpose of the Phase I Report is to reduce the uncertainty of environmental risk associated with the described property. The performance of ASTM E 1527-05* is intended to reduce, but not eliminate, uncertainty regarding the potential for recognized conditions in connection with a property.

Detailed Scope of Services

In conformance with ASTM E 1527-05, the Environmental Professional will perform the following services:

  • Inspect the property and develop a property overview
  • Identify the past owners and property uses
  • Review government records to determine the past use and use or disposal of hazardous substances
  • Review aerial photographs of the site and surrounding properties
  • Review state and federal databases
  • Review adjacent properties to evaluate the potential sources of contamination
  • Preparation of an assessment report

The actual sampling of soil, air, groundwater and/or building materials is typically not conducted during a Phase I ESA. The Phase I ESA is generally considered the first step in the process of environmental due diligence. If a site is considered contaminated, a Phase II environmental site assessment may be conducted which is a more detailed investigation for hazardous substances and/or petroleum hydrocarbons.
