Soil remediation is the process of cleaning up and restoring contaminated soil. Contaminated soil can be caused by a variety of factors, including industrial accidents, leaks from underground storage tanks, and the improper disposal of hazardous materials. Soil remediation typically involves the removal of contaminated soil and the replacement of it with clean soil.
At West Coast Tank Removal, we effectively handles the cleaning up of materials affected by leaking oil tanks, while following BC’s laws and regulations for contaminated sites and meeting the urgent needs of our clients. The damage to underground storage tanks typically begins with small holes in the metal that grow larger over time. Even if the tank is emptied and left in place, there is often a significant amount of sludge remaining on the bottom interior. Groundwater can then enter the tank through these holes, and as the metal continues to corrode, the sludge and groundwater can leak into the surrounding soil, causing contamination.
If you suspect or have been told that a tank may have potentially ruptured, give us a call today for an assessment. Our crew will come on-site and do an inspection and provide you with a quote.
