After the completion of an initial survey and a thorough soil testing and analysis, heating oil leaks may be discovered and the need for soil remediation comes into play. When heating oil from an underground or above ground storage tank comes into contact with soil or groundwater; the State of New Jersey requires property owners to take immediate action by prompting the clean-up process in compliance with NJDEP soil remediation standards. Storage tanks can rust and leak over time – producing an environmental hazard and the need for soil remediation.
The best course of action to remediate a discharge from an underground tank is to remove the source, which is the contaminated soil, and to do so with NJDEP soil remediation standards in mind. NJDEP site remediation ensures sites have been cleaned effectively without affecting other environmental factors in and around a property. After the remediation of soil, or your soil clean-up, your property will be left safe and environmentally sound once again.
Soil remediation processes should always be carried out via NJDEP soil remediation standards. This means hiring a professional soil remediation company with knowledge and experience in NJDEP site remediation specifically. NJDEP soil remediation standards ensure that further contamination does not influence other environmental factors around your property, and that NJDEP site remediation is carried out completely and effectively. Only professional soil remediation companies are kept completely up to date with all NJDEP soil remediation standards, and can keep in compliance with NJDEP site remediation regulations. Standards for NJDEP compliant remediation of soil may change over the course of time, and professionals in the remediation of soil are aware of any changes made to ensure public safety and environmental health.
• If a discharge has occurred to the surface or subsurface soil, it must be reported to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), subsequently a case number will be assigned to the property for NJDEP site remediation. Meridian Environmental will assess the extent of the contamination and will provide guidance moving forward in remediating soil. Professionals in the remediation of soil will ensure soil is returned back to its environmentally safe and sound state after a leak.
• Soils believed to be contaminated above the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection NJDEP clean-up criteria may be excavated or sampled and left in place in accordance with the States guidelines pertaining to the remediation of soil. If excavation is required, all contaminated soils will then be disposed of at a State approved recycling facility, so the remediation of soil is carried out without contaminating other environmental areas. Each soil remediating job is treated individually to ensure each property is effectively remediated.
"Three cheers for Meridian Environmental Services out of Toms River, NJ. Especially to Chris Delucca, Senior Project Manager and Owner, for all his help in the replacement of my faulty driveway. This is a TOP shelf company, who stands behind their work. I cannot say enough good things about this company and I highly recommend them should anyone need their services. We hear so many things about being ripped off… So here’s a compliment for the good guys"
"During the past several months your company, Meridian Environmental, has performed services for our client, Saturn of Toms River. As I am sure you are aware, this was a difficult time for our client since we were under contract to close title to the property as quickly as possible with AAA. The service which you and your company provided were invaluable. We appreciate your efforts and that of your company to perform all of the services required including the testing of the various wells in an expeditious manner. Your negotiations with the NJDEP went far beyond that which was anticipated in our client’s contract with you."
"The professionalism and expertise of the Meridian Employees was exceptional. To say it wasn’t an easy job is an understatement. They never missed an opportunity to ensure us that regardless how things looked, everything would be okay and it was from “start to finish”. A very hard working crew!"
"The work done by Meridian Environmental Services Inc. is unsurpassable. A Year ago, I had a huge hole in my property… today you would never know they had been there. From start to finish, everything was done in a carefule, professional manner."
