Soil Contamination

Choosing a Soil Remediation Company

With several Oil Tank companies and competitors across the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley, choosing a reputable company to remove the surrounding Soil Contamination from the area where the Oil Tank was removed can be a difficult task. West Coast Tank Recovery understands the importance of finding a cost effective solution.

West Coast Tank Recovery is the top choice for Soil Remediation in Vancouver, Soil Remediation in North Vancouver, Soil Remediation in Burnaby, Soil Remediation in New Westminster, Coquitlam Soil Remediation, and Contaminated Land Remediation in Fraser Valley.

The presence of contamination in the soil around an oil tank can only be confirmed through laboratory testing of samples. It is extremely important that a third-party company obtain soil samples after an oil tank is removed. There are a few signs that the soil may be contaminated. One visual indicator is blue or gray soil which may indicate that the tank leaked into the soil at some point. Another indicator is if there is an odor of hydrocarbon vapors.

Ultimately, the only way to accurately determine if Soil Contamination is present from a leaking Oil Tank is for a third-party company to obtain samples and send samples to an independent laboratory for testing.
