Reviews in Portland to Remove Fuel Tank

DECOMMISSIONS NORTHWEST LLC
5.0
Our oil tank was in an unusual location. The work involves taking several samples and then doing the work. We were happy with the outcome and especially with the way the job was completed and the concrete in the area was replaced. Decommissions was very professional.

An oil tank needed to be removed along with some of the soil. We were under a deadline to get it done so the owner would not be foreclosed and the home sale would go thru. After giving us their "final" bill so we could pay them they came back several days later with an additional bill they said they overlooked. We refused to pay it because we figured that was their problem. They held up the sale until it was paid. I will never use them again. Very unprofessional.

They're very friendly. The woman that works the phone is very helpful and has connected me to someone else when I had problems with my oil tank. The man that delivers the oil is also very nice to deal with.

Our 1950ish house had a buried heating oil tank. Twenty year prior the oil tank was decommissioned. During the sell of our house,it was discovered and soil samples determined the soil at one end of the tank was 10 percent above DEQ requirements. Test one cost $330, test two cost $1900, test three cost $1900,and test four cost $3500 for the water. They wanted to take a sample in the neighbors basement which they refused. What was determined?? After the test nothing changed but my bank, No further action needed. I feel robbed. Calling is financial suicide!!

They were very responsive when I called for price and information and also provide auto-fill service at the same gallon price as on-demand fill. I signed up for their auto-fill service so I no longer need to worry about running out of oil or waiting to fill 400-500 gallons at once which is now very expensive by any oil company.

I received estimates from several firms. Alpha Environmental Services was neither the most expensive nor the least. They were, however, half the cost of our most expensive estimate. We went with them because of their reputation (thanks, Angie's List), promptness, and professionalism, and because they have the appropriate DEQ licenses so we could be sure that the tank would be properly decommissioned. They basically took care of everything from initial soil test (I forget their technician's name, but he very kindly explained the process for me when he came to take soil samples) to the cleaning the oil tank, filling with inert material, and removal of vent and inlet. We had excellent communication throughout the process and received documents with lab results and certifying the decommissioning within a day or two. If we have need of other environmental services, we will certainly call on them again.

Only one small glitch - we opted not to clean vents before the new system was put in. When unit was tested we had a blow back of dust throughout our main floor - also some footprints on carpet. First Call responded immediately with a cleaning crew. We were very pleased. I recommend having vents cleaned even if they do not appear to need it.

In the process of buying a house we found that the underground oil tank had been leaking. In our agreement to purchase the house, it was agreed that the seller would hire someone to clean up the contamination, decommission the tank, and install a new tank. They hired Alpha Environmental. Alpha performed soil testing, decommissioned the tank, and installed a new tank in the basement of our house. We were very concerned about the oil leak and clean-up process. The people at Alpha were fantastic about answering our questions at length and going over the process with us. They spent a significant amount of time making sure we felt comfortable with what was happening. Doug and Richard at Alpha were really great. Richard installed the tank and did a great job. He was very open to feedback about where the vents/fill would be placed, and took the time to go over all my options as well as explain to me different issues involved with the tank and tank placement. My only concern is that when I had the new tank filled, I got a note from the oil company that the fill pipe was too short. I'm not sure how much of a problem this is, or how legitimate it is since they were able to fill the tank, and Alpha seemed very concerned about doing everything to code.

Dug to and removed top of previously pumped-out tank. Took the required soil samples and found about 10 X threshold contamination. That triggered an air sample test under the basement slab, the results of which cost a kilobuck or so but were apparently OK. They then did whatever one does to the internal volume of a decommissioned tank and sort-of filled the hole they dug. More landscaping will be required to restore the original grade. But the real problem, aside from the fact that some of the tests may have been unnecessary or faked ( a concept I hadn't even contemplated 'till I read some of their reviews here), was that they contaminated the ornamental ivy between their hole and the street heavily with oil. When I pointed this out and asked that they clean it up, their response was "Oh, it's just dirt, sometimes it looks like oil". The best they were (grudgingly) willing to do was "come and look at it" in the next week or two. When I sent Emily (the project manager) an email asking what she thought the DEQ would think if they saw it (I had previously sent her pix), the oil and more than a little of the ivy, was gone the next morning. So she knew what the DEQ would think. All in all, they did just well enough to get paid, but not nearly well enough to get recommended.

Very helpful and responsive from initial work proposal phase through tank decomissioning process. We were kept well informed of each step of this complex job. Work was performed on time and on budget. Tank decomissioning was a requirement for us to move ahead with sale of our home. EcoTech adjusted their work schedule to meet our tight deadline. Staff were uniformly polite and patiently explained what they were doing as work progressed. Very careful to protect surrounding landscape and patio from tank work area.

Recent Review: I recommend Pyramid Heating & Cooling because they stand behind their work. During routine servicing of my hot water tank the technician had an equipment accident that resulted n some damage. The main point of sharing this experience, that probably is quite rare, is the fact Pyramid made the situation right by me and that says a lot about a local business. I will use Pyramid for my future needs and recommend to others.

Recent Review: We hired Enviromental Works to test the soil and water around an old heating oil tank that we had removed. The guys where friendly and helpful. The crews that came to take the samples where on time and friendly. So this kind of thing can be pretty stressful. Stressful. Because you don't really know how much things will cost you. The test can add up very quickly and you often wonder if it will ever stop. Our contact person was helpful and had a nice common sense approach to our project. Thank you for that. The only negative problem we had was a change in personnel. We started with one guy and finished with a different person. I think we lost some information along the way. Maybe there wasn't the best hand off with the new guy. For example we removed the tank and back filled the hole ourselves. But the new guy on a couple different times mentioned that they needed to back fill the hole. The other thing that happened was they miss read the test data. A units problem. Grams vs micro grams. This caused a bit of stress. Anyway it all worked out thankfully.
