Why should I remove my oil tank?
Oil tanks, especially underground storage tanks (USTs), are an environmental danger and health hazard due to the high risk of leaks happening. Because of this high risk, oil spills from UST leaks are considered today's greatest threat to groundwater in the United States.
Even if a leak seems small and non-threatening, it could present an extreme threat to the environment and public health if left unhandled, ranging from contaminated drinking water and indoor water pollution to contaminated soil and water bodies.
Removing your oil storage tank is the only way to guarantee leaks don't happen.
