TANK LOCATE (Please Call to Schedule 503-236-3796)
If you are unsure
of whether a tank is on your property check two online resources:
1) DEQ UST Database
(>> Click Here)
Just type the house number (only the house number, nothing else)
into the address bar and "click" the Lookup screen button *e.g.
for 4817 N. Quimby St. type 4817 in the Address bar). This is a
database of all the tanks that are known to have leaked. It is
also a list of all tanks that have been decommissioned and
certified. If any previous certified soil testing took place on
the tank that revealed a leak, it would show up here.
2) PORTLAND MAPS (>> Click Here)
Just type in the address and look under Storage Tank. If
any permits, or requests for permits, exist in the records, they
will show up here. This is not a complete list!
Many of the permits have been destroyed, additionally; many
tanks were installed without permits.
If nothing shows up online, then it is time for a tank
This involves a search of the exterior of the house and a
magnetic sweep of the property for underground metallic
structures. It is not require that someone meet our
technician at the property, however, further verification
sometimes involves a search of the basement area for physical
signs of old oil supply lines. If a tank is found, it is
time to consider assessment samples to determine if it has
leaked. If no tank is found, then a letter describing our
work and findings will be issued immediately.
If you are selling your home, Oregon law requires that you
disclose the presence of an underground oil tank to the buyer
