Prestige Environmental resolved soil and groundwater contamination issues related to a former 3,000-gallon leaking heating oil tank removed from the street.

The entire cost of remediation, exceeding $70,000, was funded by New Jersey’s “Petroleum Underground Storage Tank Remediation Upgrade and Closure Fund Grant” (P.L. 1997, C. 235).
