Will 2018 pan out to have an early spring or an extended winter? With temperatures in the 60’s to 70’s in the northeast and we are still only in February, leads one to believe that the end of winter is very near despite what the groundhog says! With all this, the ground is in perfect condition to dig up to remove any underground USTs (underground storage tanks). New homeowners and current homeowners alike in New York benefit from an early spring by being able to get ahead of the housing market to have these issues addressed. Sellers definitely don’t want to loose out on a deal because they weren’t aware of the laws, and having an underground heating oil tank on your property could spell disaster if its not removed and any potential leaks addressed. In most cases there are no leaks, the tanks are removed, and a new one put inside the home, but in some cases the rotting steel on the old metal tanks release heating oil into the ground and potentially into nearby water sheds. These types of cases have to be carefully addressed and all the cleanup efforts performed in accordance with all appropriate regulations and guidelines.
