North VANCOUVER, B.C – October 28th, a recent study has shown that many residential properties in Vancouver still have a buried oil tank on the premises.

Before the wide scale introduction of natural gas, circa 1957, for the heating of domestic properties, underground oil tanks were built alongside a large percentage of the homes built in Vancouver, British Columbia.

While they could remain unnoticed for many years, homeowners are now being warned about the dangers of buried oil tanks on residential properties, as the potential rusting and corroding of the tanks can in turn lead to contamination of soil and water in surrounding areas.

Additionally, according to the official Fire Code of British Columbia, as well as bylaws in municipalities, including the City of Vancouver, homeowners are legally obliged to detect and remove the potentially harmful oil tanks from their properties.

If your home was built prior to 1957 and you suspect there may be a buried oil tank on your property, you are strongly advised to act now to avoid any environmental damage to your and/or your neighbours’ properties. The expenses of removing an oil tank after spill or leakage can also cost you dearly and damage your property land.
