Left Coast Services provides underground tank removal from your property.
LCS will decommission your tank by removal. This process begins with a utility locate and permit approval from your local jurisdiction. The tank will be exposed, cut and cleaned down to the raw steel before it is removed from the ground. During this process LCS will remain conscious of your concerns regarding all landscaping impact. Once the tank has been removed, the excavation is back filled to grade and the property is restored as close to it's original appearance as possible.
Upon completion, LCS will provide copies of all necessary decommissioning documentation and certification required.
Left Coast Services provides Tank Decommissioning In Place.
When space is limited due to obstacles such as driveways, home additions, fencing, walkways or precious landscaping, a decommissioning in place is often the perfect route to closure. This process includes pumping your tank free of any residual product, triple rinsing, and filling of the tank in place with a 2 way polyurethane foam. Once the foam product has hardened, the tank is sealed with the ventilation and fill pipe cut below ground surface and capped with concrete mortar.
Upon completion, LCS provides copies of all certification and documentation required by your local governing agencies.
Left Coast Services is happy to visit your property if you are unsure of the existence of an oil tank on site. Using metal detectors, manual ground probing rods and experience, we will thoroughly inspect your property from the interior to the exterior to determine the presence or lack of a buried tank.
If an abandoned tank is found we will provide you with an estimate for removal or filling of the tank in place if desired. If there are no signs of a tank, we will issue documentation stating the specifics of our visit and written opinion as professionals to help you move forward with closure.
