Quality Affordable Dependable Contracting
For more than four years QuadCo Environmental provided services to residents of the Hampton Roads area, and beyond, related to the abandonment of home heating oil tanks.
We performed in-place tank closures and removals of underground heating oil tanks, removal of above ground tanks, soil testing, oil spill clean up and remediation of sites contaminated by discharges of heating oil from leaking tanks.
I have over 45 years of hands-on construction, supervisory and engineering experience, and wanted to close out my career with a service that would make the world better for everyone's health.
I spoke with the folks at the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality(DEQ), researched the matter, and became very interested in providing a professional service dedicated to eliminating the negative consequences to health and the environment that the contents of abandoned fuel oil tanks represent.
I am sorry to say that because of the Virginia laws, which DO NOT require the toxic contents of the tanks to be properly disposed of, the increased costs of environmental liability business insurance, high local business taxes, and the increased propensity for people to use less expensive alternative methods to "close" heating oil tanks, in compliance with the meaningless Virginia laws, QuadCo Environmental, LLC has suspended operations.
Please read the the FAQ section. The questions that I have answered there were provided by the website service. I have paid for the website so the following information will remain an educational source for those who have the concern for their immediate environment and those living within it. Thank you sincerely to all my clients of the last 4+ years, not primarily because you were my clients, more so because you were the kind of honorable people that wanted to do the right thing and were willing to pay the little extra money and put up with the small extra inconvenience to do the work in the most responsible way.
