Oil Tank Removal On The Rise as Real Estate is Revived in NJ


Oil Tank Removal

Analysts, bloggers and media reporters aren’t the only ones noticing an increase in real estate transactions.  Environmental services companies in NJ are also feeling the effects of a recent pick up in home prices, home sales and even commercial construction.  The Entech Group, Inc, a leading energy, engineering and environmental services company in NJ, says calls for residential and commercial environmental services are up over 200 % versus one year ago.

For companies like The Entech Group, Inc, an uptick in property transactions translates to an increase in the need for environmental services such as property assessments , oil tank removal and property redevelopment.  According to The Entech Group Inc., they saw record increases in calls for services this past August and September compared to the same time last year.

“People are still saying that the real estate market is dead but those facts just aren’t true,” says Thomas A. Furey, PE and L.S.R.P. for The Entech Group, Inc. “The numbers tell a different story.  Last week JP Morgan reported a profit on home mortgages and stocks in publicly held home builders are up over 20%. Even suppliers of drywall and lumbar are reporting profits.”

Barclays Capital also issued a report forecasting that home prices could be back to peak levels by year 2015.

Environmental Services in NJ Increase With Uptick in Property Transactions

This is good news for property buyers, sellers and environmental services companies in NJ.  “When there is an increase in property transactions, we see more calls for property assessments, oil tank removal and environmental site investigations,” adds Furey.

The Entech Group Inc., provides a comprehensive suite of environmental services in the NJ area for commercial and residential properties. Some of the new environmental laws now require the use of a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) for environmental projects, and Entech’s Vice President, Thomas A. Furey, and his team can provide this service.

For the past 20 years, the Entech Group, Inc. has been a leading provider of environmental services in NJ including oil tank removal, site investigation, remediation, and solar energy solutions.  Entech provides turn-key, single source solutions to actively assist clients during all phases of project development and management.  Their team is comprised of certified engineers, environmental scientists, OSHA certified and trained construction personnel and knowledgeable technicians.

SRRA to Benefit and Accelerate Environmental Services in NJ


Site Remediation Reform Act Compliance (SRRA)

The Entech Group, Inc., an energy, engineering and environmental services company in New Jersey, is optimistic about the newly signed Site Remediation Reform Act Compliance (SRRA) that imposes strict deadlines and time frames for all environmental projects in NJ. The privatization of the NJDEP will now ensure that deadlines are adhered to and contaminated properties are remediated in a timely fashion.

The SRRA imposes mandatory deadlines for site remediation. Property owners should retain an environmental services company in NJ that offers the assistance of an LSRP. The Entech Group, Inc. employs an LSRP and stands ready to assist responsible parties with the requirements of SRRA.

Environmental Services in NJ Must Be in Full Compliance With SRRA

The Entech Group Inc., can help with preliminary assessments, environmental site investigation, remedial site investigation, project coordination, communication and submission to governing agencies, and full SRRA compliance.

Thomas A. Furey, P.E., LSRP, and Vice President of The Entech Group Inc., believes the new deadlines will be a good thing for the state. Furey is quoted, “The NJDEP has really taken on more of a policing roll to ensure the remediation of contaminated sites. This will be a good thing for our environment and will ensure that environmental hazards are taken care of in a timely manner.”

Environmental Services Company in NJ Recommends Property Buyers Sample Soil First


Oil Sampling

The Entech Group, Inc., a leading engineering and environmental services company in NJ, advises property buyers to conduct soil sampling on any property before taking ownership.  The responsibility for cleaning up contaminated sites in NJ rests solely upon the new property owner, regardless of what supporting documents the previous owner had presented.

The incidents of abandoned oil tanks in NJ are on the rise, and with these incidents come the possibility of contamination.  Even if the original property owner offered documents to show that a site had been properly decommissioned, the new property owners will still be responsible if contamination is later discovered.

To avoid the pitfalls of purchasing a home with contaminated soil, potential buyers can hire an environmental services company in NJ to perform the proper testing around any abandoned underground storage tank.

If a spill has ever occurred at the site, or if the tank has a leak, a soil sample test will detect this.  If that happens, responsibility to properly remediate the site before transfer of ownership will be on the seller’s shoulders.

Environmental Services Company in NJ Offers In Situ Remediation

If remediation is needed and there is no abandoned underground storage tank, The Entech Group can help accelerate the process of site remediation through in situ remediation for soil and groundwater remediation projects, one of the newest and most cost effective alternate remediation methods and solutions. In situ remediation treats pollution “in place”, below the ground surface and without significant disturbance. Physical extraction, biologic activity, chemical modification, or other processes are employed to remove, degrade or stabilize pollutants in soil and groundwater. In many instances, this result is accomplished through the introduction of substances into the subsurface of a site.

If the issue of an abandoned storage tank is present, working with The Entech Group and their Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) can help accelerate the removal process.

The environmental services company in NJ offers their own certified engineers, environmental scientists, OSHA certified and trained construction personnel and knowledgeable technicians.
