Oil Release Cleanup
If you experience a heating oil release, it can damage your home, the environment and even your health. It’s important to act swiftly to contain the release and minimize that damage.
Our spill response technicians will promptly evaluate the release and move quickly to contain the area in an effort to reduce further contamination.
Specific cleanup standards for soil, groundwater and surface water are defined by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and can be found in the Land Recycling Regulations. In order for a property to receive a release of liability following a spill, the cleanup must meet these standards and administrative reporting requirements must be met. A release of liability assures the property owner that the DEP will not require any further environmental cleanup. If a release of liability has not been received by the owner, the DEP may take action to compel the property owner’s compliance.
Our knowledgeable staff thoroughly understands these standards and the paperwork that must be completed in order to be compliant with the DEP’s regulations. These standards are the foundation of every release cleanup plan developed by our team.
Any release that impacts the environment must be cleaned up in accordance with the DEP standards.
- Any pooled heating oil should be removed from the area. This should be done as quickly as possible by a skilled technician and must be in accordance with DEP regulations.
- If the release has contaminated soil, the soil must be tested prior to disposal. Any soil that remains should be tested to ensure that it meets the cleanup requirements of the Land Recycling Regulations.
- If the release has contaminated groundwater or surface water, the cleanup should be closely coordinated with the DEP and may require the installation of monitoring or treatment systems.
