Homeowners and property managers may save significant oil spill cleanup costs if they take the time to conduct regular inspections of their heating oil tanks.

The spring season is upon us and the arrival of the warmer weather seems to result in a high number of oil spills from heating oil tanks. The Department of Environment is encouraging all homeowners and property managers to take the time and conduct inspections of their heating oil tanks.

The Illustrated Homeowner’s Guide to Heating Oil Tanks provides information on how to properly inspect a heating oil tank and to recognize potential spill risks.

The Guide is available on the Department of Environment website at: http://env.gov.nu.ca/programareas/environmentprotection/legislation. You may also contact the Department of Environment at (867) 975-7700 or your local Conservation Office for more information.
