Do You Own An Underground Tank?

Oil leaking from underground tanks will contaminate soil and groundwater and result in expensive environmental clean-up costs.

There are strict environmental regulations as to how tank owners can upgrade/remove their underground oil tanks.

It is a tank owner’s responsibility to ensure this work is done in accordance with regulation adopted by the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) which includes hiring a Petroleum Contractor with PM2 certification to remove the tank and ensuring an environmental assessment is completed after the tank has been removed.
