Over time, these tanks can deteriorate, leading to potential leaks that threaten the environment and public health. Removing USTs is not only a preventative measure but also a regulatory requirement, especially when properties are being transferred or redeveloped. Mill Creek Environmental recognizes the importance of responsible UST removal and closure and is equipped to navigate the many complexities involved.
