Abandoned Ottawa underground tanks and leaky buried fuel tanks may: pose a hazard to your health and investment, cause offensive odours, contaminate surface and subsurface soils.
In the last forty years, thousands of storage tank systems for petroleum and allied petroleum products have been installed across Ottawa on federal lands, mainly to service an expanding transportation sector. Many of these storage tank systems were fabricated from carbon steel without corrosion protection. As these systems age, they are more likely to fail due to corrosion.
Leaks from storage tank systems can have devastating environmental and economic impacts. Small quantities of diesel and gasoline can cause offensive odours, contaminate surface and subsurface soils, render drinking water from aquifers non-potable and create explosive build-ups of vapours in basements and other underground structures.
Your Ottawa home or business is one of the largest investments you will make in your lifetime, why gamble with investments? Eliminate the potential risk of an abandoned underground oil tank? The way to eliminate this risk is to remove the threat by removing the dormant underground tanks!
We recommend that you remove your abandoned underground tank in Ottawa as soon as possible!
