In the unfortunate circumstance that the UST has been compromised, CEC’s trained Staff of environmental scientists, geologists, and remediation experts are fully capable of handling any problem related to a leaking UST. CEC will assist the homeowner in applying for insurance coverage, and provide guidance through the coverage process. The Petroleum Underground Storage Tank Remediation, Upgrade, and Closure Fund also offer reimbursements on most costs associated with a leaking Underground Storage Tank.
In most cases, contaminated soil can be removed, and certified clean fill is put in its place. To document the success of the clean-up, CEC’s environmental scientists and geologists will collect samples. CEC will draft the necessary closing documentation that will be submitted to the State (requesting closure of any spill or case number assigned to your property) and the local municipalities (requesting closure of the building department permit). Once the state has reviewed CEC’s paperwork and finds it acceptable, your property will have a clean bill of health.
