UST Removal

HazChem Environmental has over 30 years of experience in underground tank cleaning and UST removal. Federal and state laws regulate Aboveground Storage Tanks (ASTs) and Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) to protect the environment. Underground Storage Tanks pose a particular concern as they are not easily accessible for inspection.  A leaking underground storage tank can contaminate the soil and groundwater with toxic substances. Vapors from leaking storage tanks can also travel through sewer lines into adjacent buildings, increasing the risk of fire and explosion. Therefore, UST removal is often necessary.
