Residents and homeowners of Vancouver B.C are being advised that buried oil tanks are still a leading threat to the local environment.

While they have been out of use for several decades, a surprisingly large number of oil tanks still remain out of sight in many residential neighbourhoods across Vancouver.

Originally used to heat homes, oil tanks were abandoned in favour of gas heating, once it became more widespread and affordable, and by the 1970’s the use of oil tanks was largely a thing of the past. However, they were often abandoned with haste and many homeowners failed to drain all of the remaining oil from the tanks.

As oil tanks are buried underground, often with few visual clues, there is growing concern that many modern Vancouver homeowners have no idea that they may be harbouring a potentially dangerous relic in their backyards.

Environmental agencies have warned that the leaking oil from abandoned oil tanks can leech into the surrounding soil and water, causing destruction to the local environment. Homeowners are being strongly encouraged to take action if they suspect that they may have a buried oil tank on their property.
