Each year, hundreds of fuel oil spills from home heating oil tanks occur……
Did you know that more than two million homes in New York are heated by fuel oil? Each year, hundreds of fuel oil spills from home heating oil tanks occur. These spills have resulted in contamination of basements, damage to basement contents, contamination of groundwater, wells and soils, and expensive cleanups that are often not covered by homeowner’s insurance.
As winter approaches, it is prudent to check your fuel tank for integrity and security. Some of the most common causes of home fuel oil spills are: failing storage tanks; faulty fuel lines and connections; collapsing tank legs and supports; and overflows during delivery. Take a look at your tank and conveyance system and take action to avoid a release.
If your tank is buried, you may want to refer to the following NYSDEC link: https://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/32263.html
Stay safe and warm this winter!
