Have you discovered and abandoned underground storage tank on your property or have a heating oil tank that needs removal and you live in Columbia, Dutchess, Sullivan, Ulster, Rockland, or Putnam county in New York? Tri State Environmental Services is known for our excellence in both value and quality of New York environmental services, and we specialize in underground storage tank removal. Due to widespread use and its natural tendency to be known for leakage, underground storage tanks (USTs) are considered a significant risk to tank owners/operators, as well as prospective property buyers that may be unaware of abandoned and undocumented USTs. Underground fuel storage tanks cannot just be dug up with a backhoe, because you aren’t digging up just any tank. Between the regulatory requirements and the potential for problems relating to contamination, you have to be specialized in the field and have the know how, operators, and trained staff to work in conjunction with the customer and the governing regulatory agencies to ensure that a cleanup is performed in accordance with all appropriate regulations and guidelines. The purpose and removal of these tanks is to protect human health and the environment by preventing releases of hazardous substances. The release of these products into the environment threatens groundwater resources and can cause explosive vapors to seep into confined spaces and occupied dwellings. Our emergency response telephone numbers are staffed 24 hours a day in order to provide prompt response and to ensure clients’ peace of mind. Our response personnel are available round the clock to be dispatched to situations like these, so if you a concern about a UST, call Tri State Environmental Services located in Hawthorne New York today!
