NJ Environmental Services Company Reveals Dates of Past Oil Leaks Through Age-Dating


Age-Dating: Oil Tank Leaks

The Entech Group, a leading engineering, energy and environmental services company in NJ, can determine the date of a previous oil tank leak through a process called ‘age-dating’.  This technique can help property owners who face costs associated with contaminated soil and groundwater.

When a property owner was facing an expensive environmental problem, age dating was able to secure them 100% coverage by their insurance.  The property owner’s 550 gallon Underground Heating Oil Storage Tank had previously been pulled by a company who noticed an oil leak that had contaminated the soil and ground water around it. Lacking the environmental expertise, the company left their client to deal with the problem on their own. Facing up to $150,000 in costs and badly contaminated soil underneath their house, the property’s owner architect turned to The Entech Group, Inc.

The Entech Group, Inc. was able to provide their professional environmental services by performing sampling and analysis services of the soil and groundwater of the contaminated area. Burdened by the costs of remediating the site, their client also hired The Entech Group, Inc. to perform a site investigation.

Environmental Services Company in NJ Determines Date of Leak To Ensure Insurance Coverage

Age-dating was able to determine the date of the oil leak compared to the expiration date of their client’s insurance coverage.  It turned out that the leak occurred 70 days before the property owner’s insurance expired and The Entech Group Inc. was able to secure them coverage for the project.

The environmental services company in NJ offers their own certified engineers, environmental scientists, OSHA certified and trained construction personnel and knowledgeable technicians. Entech understands the system and can help protect property owners.
