Site Remediation

Count On ADS to Manage Remediation End-to-End

When ADS Environmental removes an underground storage tank (UST) from the ground, if there is any evidence of a discharge – such as visible holes in the tank or staining on the soil – it must be reported to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.

As with any underground fuel tank removal, the town comes to the site for an inspection; if the inspector sees visible holes in the tank or evidence of leakage, such as staining of the soil, the inspector fails the tank removal. The case is reported to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Hotline, NJDEP assigns a case/incident number, and it’s up to the homeowner to have the site cleaned – i.e., remediated.

As a New Jersey environmental contractor with more than 40 years’ experience, ADS Environmental will expertly remediate your property, in full compliance with approved environmental practices and regulations. While cleaning contaminated soil may seem a daunting undertaking, you can trust ADS Environmental’s Licensed Subsurface Evaluator to manage the entire process for you. We’re with you all the way, until NJDEP gives you its final OK, and your property is clean and marketable again.

What is Site Remediation?

Site remediation for soil involves removing any contaminated soil in and around an underground oil tank excavation and replacing it with clean, certified backfill material. While excavating, our New Jersey-Licensed Subsurface Evaluator will be onsite, screening the excavation with a Photoionization Detector to determine how much soil must be removed. The PID guides the process by detecting the level of volatile organic compounds in the soil.

How do You Dispose of Contaminated Soil?

ADS transports all contaminated soil to an NJDEP-licensed recycling facility for disposal. Once all contaminated soil is removed, our Licensed Subsurface Evaluator will take the required number of soil samples to prove to NJDEP that the excavation is clean. ADS will then backfill the excavation with certified clean fill material.

What Happens When My Project is Complete?

Upon successful completion of your project, ADS Environmental will prepare a Remedial Action Report, along with the UHOT (Unregulated Heating Oil Tank) form, and submits them to NJDEP for a recommendation of No Further Action (NFA) for your property.

We work hand-in-hand with you to complete your project as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible, and to facilitate the issuance of a No Further Action letter from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
