Underground Fuel Tanks Are a Significant Concern2014-09-08 11:08:24 Posted By Jila Rezai
Underground oil tanks are still a significant concern on the Northshore and in Vancouver because of the risk of environmental contamination, but also the legal liability to homeowners and Realtors®.
Did you know that as of May 1, 2014, the City of Vancouver has released new regulations for all underground tank removals:
Soil sampling is now mandatory,
A new report template must be used, and
A qualified environmental professional must now sign off.
These are crucial steps in properly evaluating the environmental conditions of a property during the tank removal and in preparing a report for certifying the property for environmental compliance.
Contact a tank removal company with certified environmental professionals on staff to manage your entire tank project from tank locating through to removal, soil sampling, soil remediation and full environmental closure reporting.
