storage tank regulations, though seemingly complex, do allow for
alternative monitoring schemes, optimal closure methods, and even
categorical and site-specific variances. ENVIROASSESSORS can help
you take advantage of these provisions to develop the most
cost-effective solution to your particular problem.
many pre-monitoring activities normally required, such as
determining what materials had been stored in a tank and its

underground tanks are used in the United States to store petroleum
products and hazardous chemicals. Thousands of these tanks are
estimated to have leaked into the subsurface, causing environmental
damage. To assist clients in cleaning up existing spills and
preventing future leaks, ENVIROASSESSORS provides the following special tank
services in addition to its standard site characterization, remedial
action, and regulatory assistance services:
testing and monitoring to establish existing tank conditions and
closure programs to remove or abandon tanks that are damaged or
no longer in use; and
programs to cleanup sites contaminated by tank leaks.
