Soil Remediation Process Step by Step

Step 1 - Talk To us about your project. Once we know the details about what is going on, we can discuss all the options available to you. We will determine if going with an open ended contract or a fixed price contract makes more sense. If you are not happy with the contractor who removed your underground oil tank, you can reach out to us for a second opinion. Soil remediation is not the only option to close out an open NJDEP case number.

Step 2 - After receiving your signed contract, A-1 will schedule the site work. If your are choosing a fixed price soil remediation, we will perform a soil investigation with our Geo-Probe equipment first. If you are choosing an open ended soil remediation, then will schedule the excavation work. We can schedule these projects within 5 business days of receiving a contract and deposit.

Step 3 - Once the site work is complete and all the contaminated soil above the NJDEP cleanup standards has been replaced with certified clean fill material, A-1 will write your NJDEP report and submit for review by NJDEP. They will issue you a NFA once reviewed. This is your clean bill of health. You will need this to close on your property if you are selling.

Top 5 Most Frequently Asked Questions

(1) How Much Does it Cost for a Soil Remediation?

The cost of a typical project can range between $8,000 and $12,000. However, larger projects may arise, especially if groundwater contamination is involved. At A-1 Oil Tank Removal, we understand that the total project cost is influenced by factors such as the extent of soil contamination and its location. For instance, if the contamination has reached beneath your home, the expenses can significantly increase due to the need for structural underpinning and excavation.

Many companies provide a cost range for soil remediation projects, but they cannot guarantee staying within that range. This lack of certainty arises because they haven't conducted proper due diligence to assess the contamination plume's extent.

Choose A-1 Oil Tank Removal for peace of mind. We offer a unique flat-rate remediation service that ensures a fixed price before commencing any work. By availing our services, you can eliminate uncertainties regarding the project's cost and receive professional soil remediation at an affordable price.

(2) Is a Soil Remediation Always Required if my Tank Fails the Inspection?

If your tank fails the visual inspection, there's no need to panic about soil remediation right away. At A-1 Soil Remediations, we understand that it's not always necessary. When you notify the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) and receive a case number for your property, there are two effective ways to close out the case and obtain a coveted No Further Action (NFA) letter.

Method 1: Precise Sampling and Evaluation

One way to address the case is by sampling the excavation area under the supervision of a certified subsurface evaluator. Our expert team will extract six to seven samples from the vicinity of the tank grave. The crucial aspect is that all samples must return from the lab with contamination levels below the NJDEP's cleanup criteria of 5,100 parts per million (ppm). If any samples fall between 1,000 ppm and 5,100 ppm, additional laboratory analysis will be required. These additional samples must successfully meet the cleanup criteria. Once this thorough evaluation is complete, the subsurface evaluator can compile a final report and confidently request the NFA letter from the NJDEP.

Method 2: Effective Soil Remediation

Alternatively, you can opt for soil remediation to close out an open case number. Our proficient team will meticulously remove all contaminated soil that exceeds the cleanup standards. After this vital step, we will sample the open excavation area and diligently backfill it with certified clean fill. To finalize the process, we will submit a comprehensive final report to the NJDEP, requesting the highly sought-after NFA letter.

Guaranteed NFA with A-1 Oil Tank Removal

At A-1 Oil Tank Removal, your satisfaction and successful case closure are our top priorities.

(3) What Happens if Groundwater is Encountered During a Soil Remediation?

According to the regulations set by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), if soil contamination is found within two feet of groundwater or bedrock, a thorough groundwater investigation becomes necessary. In the best-case scenario, our soil remediation process will eliminate all sources of contamination, resulting in clean groundwater samples from the laboratory. To extract these samples effectively and cost-efficiently, we employ temporary monitoring wells.

In instances where bedrock is encountered, NJDEP mandates drilling through the bedrock until groundwater is reached. This process tends to be more time-consuming and carries additional expenses.

At A-1 Oil Tank Removal, we understand the unique circumstances of each project. Our expert team will assess your specific situation and provide tailored guidance on the most suitable approach. Additionally, we offer transparent flat-rate pricing for select groundwater cleanup projects, ensuring cost-effectiveness and peace of mind for our clients.

(4) What Payment Options do You Accept for Soil Remediation Services?

At A-1 Oil Tank Removal, we understand that the unexpected costs associated with soil remediation can pose financial challenges for many homeowners. To alleviate the burden of paying the entire project cost upfront, we offer various options to accommodate your needs. We provide financing solutions, allowing you to spread out the payments over a period of time. Additionally, we accept all major credit cards for convenient payment.

If you are in the process of selling your home, we offer the option of payment at closing, provided you are currently under contract to sell. To ensure transparency and clarity, we require the involvement of attorneys representing both parties. After performing a comprehensive soil investigation, we will provide a fixed price for the cleanup, allowing everyone involved to have a clear understanding of the liability before the project commences. Rest assured, we will complete the necessary cleanup and obtain the No Further Action (NFA) letter from NJDEP prior to the closing.

Choose A-1 Oil Tank Removal for flexible payment options and the convenience of payment at closing. Contact us today to discuss your specific situation and explore the payment solutions available to you.

(5) How Long is the Soil Remediation Process?

In an ideal scenario, our soil remediation process can be completed in as little as one day for the site work, followed by three to four weeks for the preparation of the NJDEP report and No Further Action (NFA) letter. This timeframe aligns with the successful completion of most projects.

However, if a groundwater investigation is required, the timeline may be extended by several weeks to a few months, depending on the specific circumstances. Adhering to the guidelines set by the NJDEP, we must follow certain timelines, including a thirty-day waiting period between sampling events if the initial round of groundwater samples exceeds the cleanup standards.

We understand that time constraints may arise, particularly when selling a property. At A-1 Soil Remediation, we offer options to expedite the process, ensuring a prompt resolution. Moreover, we provide the flexibility for payment to be collected after the property has been sold, with funds held in escrow.
