ABANDONING A TANK

Abandoning an underground storage tank is the least obstructive means of decommissioning a tank. Typically soils located above the underground tank excavated.

The size of the excavation is usually 50” x 50”. After gaining access to the top of the tank it is cut large enough to have a field technician fit inside of the tank. The tank would then be emptied and all the contents from the tank would then be either transferred into a new tank on site, or be disposed of at a licensed waste disposal facility. After the tank has been properly cleaned it is then filled with gravel. The placement of this material will not change if water interfaces with it as it would with sand After the tanks interior if filled, the soils unearthed would be placed back from which they were. Tank abandonment will minimize the restoration of the property versus tank removal.
