This so called contamination we are talking about...it's all around
you in your daily life...everyday! When you drop one drop of gasoline
from the tip of the nozzle onto the ground after you get your gas at a
gas station...and that gas washes across the pavement and on to the
lawn at the gas station...most likely if a soil test was done they
would call it contaminated soil. It's ridiculous! I think that
Congress has pulled most of the EPA's teeth on this issue, no site is
having to be cleaned up like the EPA wanted it cleaned up back in 1988
when they wrote the guidelines. What would you rather have as a
country...perfectly virgin uncontaminated soil...and no money for
necessities like food, water, electricity? There is no end to the
depths of bullshit the EPA wanted to put people through regarding
petroleum so called "contamination". We live with it everyday...gas
and oil residue is on your feet every day of your life if you go out
of your house...therefore the EPA should make you pull up your carpet
and floor covering to have them hauled off to a decontamination site?
Thank God Congress defanged the wackos who where in charge at the EPA
You were not saying anything we don't already know. But you did not
answer the question. Do you or do you not want to sell your house?
Try putting your house on the market if you have an leaking
underground storage tank in your backyard.
Better not drive a Ford. They'll leak more oil in a year then a lot
of underground tanks. Do you have to declare that you've had a Ford
park in your driveway??

We live in the Meadowlands area and had ours done about 8 yrs ago. $1000 to cut
off the top, clean it out, fill with sand. Don't remember who did it but most
likely got them from yellow pages/newspaper.

That's one method. I'd also compare it price wise to actually having
it totally removed. That way you don't have anything left to have to
disclose to a buyer who may get nervous, even if you know it was done
correctly, but is still there.
