Before the 1960’s many homes in West Vancouver and North Vancouver were heated by oil. This oil was stored in metal tanks buried close to the foundation of homes. Fuel tanks are no longer in use. While some of these underground storage tanks have been removed, many still remain buried on North Shore residential properties.
To learn how you can determine if you have an underground storage tank buried on your property click here:
- District of West Vancouver
- District of North Vancouver
- City of North Vancouver does not inspect, warrant or provide any assurance whatsoever that a residential underground oil tank was or has been removed in accordance with any standards.
