Finding A Hidden Underground Storage Tank in Jersey City, NJ

Finding A Hidden Underground Storage Tank in Jersey City, NJ

Project Description:

An abandoned in place, decommissioned, or “orphaned” underground storage tank was detected in the walkway to the home. The previous owners tried to “hide the vent line” by painting the vent line the same color as the wall, as well as, using similar piping for the railing of the staircase that matches the vent pipe. An underground storage tank was detected, with the dimensions, depth, and product lines marked out in pink. Although previous records indicated that the tank was “probably removed”, this was not the case. This happens too frequently in the real estate world. Using our multi-layers of methodology, we were able to determine the true presence of an underground storage tank or UST, so that the purchaser/buyer knew the facts of what they were inheriting with their purchase. The photos attached are reflective of the data collected and the orientation, dimensions, and depths of the tank and its associated piping (all marked out in pink).
