Maria Mak. Burnaby Real Estate Agent - Underground oil tank removals new regulations -

Underground oil tanks are still a significant concern in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland because of the risk of environmental contamination, but also the legal liability to homeowners and Realtors®.

Did you know that as of May 1, 2014, the City of Vancouver has released new regulations for all underground tank removals: 

  1. Soil sampling is now mandatory,
  2. A new report template must be used, and
  3. A qualified environmental professional must now sign off.
These are crucial steps in properly evaluating the environmental conditions of a property during the tank removal and in preparing a report for certifying the property for environmental compliance.
