Underground Storage Tanks (UST) and Aboveground Storage Tank (AST) Permitting, Installation and Removal
AEI has the ability to remove and install USTs and ASTs that are commonly used to store petroleum and are regulated nationwide to prevent the release of toxic materials.
AEI works to:
- Obtain all necessary permits
- Review client / project requirements
- Work with appropriate regulatory agencies
- Perform field work to remove USTs
- Secure soil and groundwater samples for laboratory analysis
- Prepare a final report that documents our methods and findings
All regulated USTs owners are required to have permits for all installations of USTs or leak detection systems, renovations and operations. UST owners will be subjected to penalties if they do not acquire all proper permits. AEI assists clients in obtaining these necessary permits.
Improper installations that compromise the integrity or the proper functioning of USTs can lead to future problems. AEI has the ability to install USTs and ASTs while meeting leak detection, spill, and overfill and corrosion protection standards.
If contamination is discovered AEI can assist in applying for reimbursement of cleanup costs. With the experience from removing and replacing of over 1,200 USTs within California, AEI has the expertise to remove or close underground storage tanks cost effectively.
In the event that a direct tank removal is not a practical solution, AEI will perform an in situ-closure which involves a triple rinsing of the tank and then filling it with inert cement slurry. This usually occurs in cases where the UST is under the foundation of a building or installed in close proximity to a structure or highway. In these situations AEI performs an in situ-closure upon approval of the local agencies involved.
AEI works to innovate demolition solutions for buildings with environmental hazards. AEI’s demolition services are intended for small commercial and residential properties.
Contaminated Soil Disposal and Recycling
AEI will determine and coordinate the most cost effective and environmentally sustainable solution for the removal and disposal of hazardous materials or contaminated soil. Our experienced staff will perform analytical sampling and testing on contaminated soils in order to determine the most appropriate treatment method for contaminated soil. AEI will then transport the soil for disposal.
Onsite Waste Cleanup and Facility Closures
In facilities where waste has accumulated over time, property owners must remove the hazardous materials or ensure they will not pose a threat to human health or the environment.
AEI is experienced in the removal and disposing of hazardous material and obtaining the correct certificates of disposal. AEI has the ability to install and remove oil water separators, remove hydraulic lifts, and perform closures and demolition of hazardous facilities.
