Removing An Oil Tank in Morris County

Homeowners in towns such as Parsippany-Troy Hills, Mount Olive, Dover, Rockaway, Morristown, Morris Plains and Denville have dealt with many oil tank removal issues in the past. Underground oil tanks have the potential for leaks and spills. The reason for this is that bare steel materials were used in the underground oil tank, which over time causes corrosion. If this happens to an underground oil tank in Morris County, the leaks and spills could expose chemicals to the land causing pollution to the soil, the air and possibly groundwater in the surrounding area.

Changes In the Residential Oil Tank Market

In the residential oil tank market from 1991 until 2005, many insurance companies covered 100% of the soil cleanup due to the impact on ground water. In 2005 however, they started to change policies that make it harder for homeowners to receive full coverage. This resulted in homeowners having to pay for some of the upfront costs that could run them a few thousand dollars.

How does this process work? If a homeowner files a claim, the insurance company will send out a third party consultant to gather sampling for possible soil cleanup / remediation services of the contaminated area. After the results are known, the insurance company will inform the homeowner of their percent of the environmental remediation cost, with the insurance company covering the rest of the environmental remediation cost. Factors that affect this decision are:

  • The age date of the tank
  • Forensic environmental service lab results (age dating)
  • Who’s insurance policy (former owner vs. new owner) to determine who pays

We understand that it’s very hard for everyone to play nice on this subject. At the Entech Group, we recommend that every client does an age dating test. Many insurance companies will try to steer you into hiring their preferred remediation contractor in NJ.

We want you to know that you have other options available. You don’t have to go with the insurance companies preferred remediation contractor.
