BREWSTER, N.Y., Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Envirostar Corp., a leading environmental remediation company, announced an expanded service offering designed to address the alarming increase in ruptured residential fuel-oil tanks. Record climatic conditions have been playing havoc with aging underground storage tanks (UST) and resulted in a significantly higher failure rate of these tanks leading to an undetermined number of spilled gallons of hazardous oil. Home heating fuel oil storage tanks are usually 275 to 1,000 gallons in capacity and do not fall under the State or federal regulations. The number of residential storage tanks has been estimated to exceed 3 million in New York State alone.
"The weather this year is the main perpetrator for the majority of tank failures; weather combined with aging metal tanks that were buried decades ago," states Stephanie DiBartolo, Founder and President at Envirostar Corp. She continues: "Steel tanks like the ones used to store home heating oil probably pose a greater overall environmental risk than most of headline making spills – consider the millions of buried tanks, if only a small percentage leak, you have a cumulative disaster in the making."
Envirostar removes and replaces above and below-ground fuel tanks for: Private Homes, Businesses, Municipalities, Gas Stations, Condominiums and Apartment Complexes. They recognize and understand that oil tank removal is more than just an isolated issue.
