Reliable Tank Removal Services: Homeowners, building managers, general contractors, business owners, environmental agencies, and organizations call AEEG when they need their underground fuel storage tanks professionally removed. 

We provide the following tank removal services.

Inspection: We will evaluate the current situation and develop a plan to resolve any issues we find. We have certified third-party inspectors for USTs and SPOOL inspectors for ASTs.

Pumping: We will pump all residual fluids from the underground storage tank and properly dispose of the contents according to the state and federal regulations.

Inerting/Purging: To make the tank safe to remove, we may need to use one of two methods, inerting or purging. We can replace the air in a tank with chemically non-reactive gases to decrease the combustible materials. This is called inerting. This helps prevent fires and explosions. Another method used for making the take safe is purging or ventilating the tank to replace or dilute the flammable vapors in the tank with air, reducing the flammable mixture of fuel and oxygen. Anytime you are working with confined spaces that store flammable materials, there is always the possibility that combustion could occur. We minimize this through inerting and purging.

Excavating: We can safely excavate the property to efficiently remove the underground storage tank. Our skilled heavy machinery operators have the training, techniques, and talent to properly remove your tank from your property without causing residual damage. 

Soil Sampling/Soil Testing: After properly removing the tank, we test the soil surrounding the old tank. 

Backfilling: Once the underground tank is removed, our knowledgeable team can fill in the space where your tank used to be. We level off the  property and properly dispose of your tank following environmental regulations.
