Currently, there is no law stating that a homeowner must remove and underground storage tank from their property. However, if you are going to sell your property, mortgage companies may require documentation that a tank has been removed or abandoned.
An underground storage tank can either be removed or legally abandoned (when necessary). The tank removal must be done by a licensed contractor. A permit must be pulled and the fee must be paid prior to the day of the tank removal. We need a minimum of 72 hours notice for the removal/abandonment, as the Fire Marshal must be on site to witness the removal/abandonment and taking of the soil sample by the contractor.
No tanks shall be removed prior to Fire Marshal arrival, no exceptions. A copy of the soil analysis report shall be sent to the Fire Marshal's Office for our records.
All inquiries are being handled remotely by email or phone. All correspondence and requests for information should be emailed to email@example.com or you may call 203-452-5043 and leave a message.
