One stop shopping is one of many advantages we offer our clients. As a full service environmental firm we provide waste services; emergency spill response services; drilling; remediation system construction; monitoring and sampling services; professional services.
A standard environmental site will require the majority of our services, to varying degrees, as the project progresses. Providing an array of services allows us to focus on the project life cycle. This adds value to our services through efficiencies and flexibility. By working with one contractor from start to finish you get a less rigid schedule; it is easier to swap out tasks and personnel as new variables emerge. You have the added benefit of dealing with one project manager who develops a deep understanding of your project and your goals.
Whether you are a consulting and engineering firm subbing out contractors or an individual property owner in need of environmental assistance, our skilled project managers will be with you from investigation to remediation to closure.
A compliance inspection can be uncomfortable. Like getting audited, we all cross our fingers and hope it never happens. If we are not prepared, the consequences are costly.
Working with Island Pump & Tank is like having a good accountant - we teach you what regulator’s look for and show you simple ways to avoid fines. We provide our clients with low-cost, non-regulatory inspections. Our compliance experts inspect your facility, generate a comprehensive report, and work with you to find easy, manageable solutions that fit into your day-to-day operations. The information is completely confidential and what you do with it is up to you.
Emergency Spill Response
Island Pump & Tank currently holds various municipal and commercial Emergency spill response contracts and the Long Island Railroad spill response contracts. We have spill response equipment and personnel ready to be dispatched at a moments notice 24 hours a day 365 days a year.
Our emergency spill response personnel are HAZMAT, HAZWOPPER, LPS, and FEMA ICS trained. They are ready to handle any situation.
Over the past few years we have had numerous complaints of slow pumps and false water readings on tank monitoring systems. Several customers have noted the need to change pump filters multiple times after a delivery has occurred. In addition, during these filter changes a “coffee ground” type of material has been noted in the strainer baskets. These issues are a direct result of the introduction of today’s required ultra low sulfur diesel fuel (ULSD) mixtures. Over time, a slimy bacteria sludge layer forms at the base as well as the sidewalls.
Monitoring and Sampling
Monitoring is a basic tenet of environmental investigation and remediation. The resulting data is the basis for remedial decisions and will ultimately determine a site’s regulatory status or change in status.
Most entry level scientists learn early on how to collect data that is both accurate and precise. While these data qualities are the foundation of good science they will not necessarily lead to accurate conclusions. At Island Pump & Tank we understand that the data we collect tells a story. Recognizing when, where, and why you collect your data is as important as the accuracy and precision. If you don’t answer those three fundamental questions your data loses integrity.
Our Professional Services Department provides client-specific solutions to help you reach your goals. Strategies must adhere to the client ’s unique budget and timeline along with the project’s physical and regulatory constraints. Managing these variables requires us to draw upon our extensive experience while appreciating each project’s distinct challenges. From cutting edge to tried and true, our solutions balance cost and risk with your project objectives.
Cleaning up subsurface contamination can be challenging. You can’t see what is under the ground so you need to rely on technology and experience. As a leader in subsurface remediation, we draw upon our over 50 years of experience to apply the right technology for your site-specific needs
