Soil & Groundwater Remediation

What is soil remediation and are you a candidate for it?

In the event that a leaking oil tank has been identified on your property, Steve Rich Environmental Contractors (SREC) has a fully qualified staff that will work diligently to execute a comprehensive plan for soil and ground water remediation in a timely, cost effective manner.

The soil remediation process always begins with the removal of the source of the contamination — SREC will remove your tank in accordance with NJDEP and USEPA regulations.

In most cases, SREC will determine the extent of the contamination and if there has been an impact to ground water as well as soil. That contaminated soil is then removed from your property and disposed at a licensed soil disposal facility.

Once it is believed that all contaminated soils have been removed, soil samples are taken from the excavation to confirm the integrity of the soil. Soil samples are sent to an NJDEP certified lab for analysis.

The excavation is backfilled with certified clean fill up to rough grade.

If ground water is encountered during excavation activities, a ground water investigation must be conducted according to NJDEP regulations. Typically, ground water investigations are conducted through the homeowner’s insurance carrier because it is generally considered a third party liability claim.

SREC works closely with the insurance company’s consulting firm to determine the ground water quality and steps for remediation when necessary.

Upon completion of all site remediation projects, a full Remedial Action Report will be prepared for submission to the NJDEP. Once accepted, the NJDEP will issue a No Further Action (NFA) for your property.

SREC will work closely with you and the NJDEP to facilitate the completion of your project to the point of No Further Action.

Steve Rich is a great group of professionals that make a messy job less stressful. They took care of two of my commercial properties. One was an easy oil tank removal and the other was not so easy. There was remediation work that needed to be done and there were many people that they needed to coordinate with including PSEG, county and city departments, as well as the tenants of the buildings. They did it all with the upmost competency and professionalism. Everything was always explained and reviewed with me and even the owner came to the job site for a meeting. Suzanne took great care of our remediation and educated us along the way so we never had a doubt this was being done correctly. If I could give them 6 stars I would. I highly recommend them for any job, commercial or residential.

I received the recommendation for Steve Rich and Associates, Inc. from a friend who raved about their service. My first contact was during the weekend and online. Steve called me back on the next work day. And from there everything was clearly explained. All my questions were answered. Steve and his office had everything organized. The permit came in a timely manner. PSE&G labeled the gas and water lines. Everything was taken care of. The day of the oil tank removal went smoothly. All work was done neatly. A tarp was put out to collect the dirt. The hole that was dug was precise and just the size needed to remove the tank. The crew that came walked me though the process and answered all my questions. It was arranged for PSE&G to be there to make sure none of the digging for the oil tank was done around the gas line. The whole process could not have been easier. I wholeheartedly recommend this company for removal of an underground oil tank. And bonus!!! My oil tank was intact and had no signs of contamination in the soil.

I recently had to have an underground oil tank removed for a sale of a home. Everyone of their staff members, and I dealt with quite a few people were exceptional. They assisted me promptly. They were professional, courteous, and fair with their pricing. All around a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend them.

I reached out to Steve Rich for our oil tank removal - we were selling our house, and needed to have it removed. The service from Steve Rich is great, and easy and to the point. Their prices were better than 2 other companies I reached out to, and Glenn responded to my inquiry super fast. They also helped guide me for getting the permit. Glenn helped answer all my questions, and we were able to get a schedule pinned down in about a week (it depends on your town), but everything went smooth, and Glenn sent the completed paperwork the next day to ensure we could move forward with the sale. The actual extraction was super smooth. Danny was the excavator, and he used a detector and found exactly where the tank was, and they were done in just a few hours. Overall, great experience for something so intimidating. Much easier than I expected, and better price than the others I reached out to. Recommended for Passaic county and wherever else they might serve in the NE.
