UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANK REMOVAL
A2Z possesses a preponderance of both public and private sector experiences in the removal of underground storage tanks in the Mid-Atlantic region. Clients have included the Maryland National Guard, Clean Harbors, Naval Surface Warfare Center, University of MD, Anne Arundel County Public Schools, MD & VA Milk Producers, Potts & Callahan, British Em-bassy and Vermont House Apartments.
For conventional removals, A2Z possesses ample equipment for removing tanks ranging from small residential fuel oil tanks to the larger 30,000-gallon tanks used for industrial purposes. A2Z also possesses the equipment and training to perform in-place abandonment and customized removals. In-place abandonment involves vacuum removal of contents, de-gassing, confined space entry, tank cleaning, sample collection and filling with low strength flowable fill (LSFF). A2Z performs all these services with it‟s own labor force and equipment. In cases of special site settings and unanticipated obstacles, A2Z leads the local market in developing effective responses and adapting conventional equipment to the task.
In cases of leakage, A2Z performs contaminated soil excavation and removal to a disposal facility using subcontractors to delineate the extent of contamination and to perform laboratory analysis. A2Z uses subcontractors in this way to avoid any conflict of interest.
PRECISION TANK TESTING
A2Z offers prompt dependable service and highly competitive rates for the mandatory precision testing of both existing tanks and newly installed tanks. This competitive pricing structure includes discounts for multiple tests performed at the same site on the same day.
