Petroleum Tank Removal in Northern Virginia: Signs There's an Outdoor Hidden Tank

If you’ve bought an older home, especially in a more rural area, there may be signs of an outdoor hidden petroleum tank, and you may need petroleum tank removal at your Northern Virginia home.

Signs that there may be a buried tank outdoors:

  • Visible oil tank fill or vent pipes protruding from the ground or flush with the ground anywhere on a property.
  • Curbside oil fill pipes: curbside oil filler pipes could go as far as 75 feet or more away from the underground tank.
  • Depressions near a building could be due to recent petroleum tank-related excavation, particularly if the depression is outside a wall where it would have been logical to install a buried tank, such as at a building foundation near the location of indoor current or previously installed oil-fired heating equipment.
  • Areas of dead grass or plantings in a small spot where a buried or previous fuel tank fill pipe may have been installed - from spillage of fuel.
  • Oil Fill and vent pipes close to a building wall or any unexplained pipes on the property.

If you suspect an underground petroleum tank on your Northern Virginia property, please contact SES Mid Atlantic LLC. The experts at SES have the experience and skills to determine whether there’s a tank on the property, if it been properly decommissioned, and if there have been any oil leaks that need to be remediated.
