Oil Tank Removals in The Hudson Valley
Underground Tank Removal
Tank Masters will call utility companies to mark out underground utilities and then apply for local permits. On the day of your project, we will excavate the entire top of the tank using a rubber track excavator. We will then cut an access hole in the top of the tank and remove all liquids. Our technician will then enter the tank to remove the sludge and completely swab tank interior dry. We will then remove the tank from the ground for the local building, fire or code enforcer to inspect the tank and void. After tank has been removed, we will then back-fill the tank void compacting in 12” lifts back to its original grade and seed the area.
NOTE: Excavation sizes usually range from 2’ in each direction past the ends of the tank. A 550-gallon tank is 48” in diameter and is 5’5” long while a 1,000 gallon tank is 48” in diameter and is 10’9” long.
Aboveground Tank Removal
Tank Masters will apply for local permits. On the day of the project, we will cut an access hole into vessel and remove any oil & sludge from the tank bottom. We will then completely swab dry the tanks’ interior and remove the vessel from the property, cutting into pieces if necessary. We will then concrete patch any holes in block or the foundation from the fill and vent pipe. Once the tank and liquid waste have been disposed, we will then provide a scrap receipt for the tank & liquid manifest from a licensed facility and close out permit.

Step by Step Underground Removal
Tank Masters was awarded the bid for an above ground 3,000 tank removal at West Point. This tank was 65" in diameter 18' Long and weighs 3,000 pounds empty. It had over 1000 pounds of sludge which had to be scraped out and handed up 8' to another man in 5 gallon spackle buckets. We used a four man crew for the project which took 12 hrs. One man worked a sawzall for 8 1/2 hrs straight making cuts and used 36 blades. Great job to the Tank Masters Crew!
No matter how labor intense this project was it was still an Honor for Tank Masters Environmental to serve West Point because of the way our solders and their families serve us.
