As Chris pulled it out of the ground an inspector noticed that it was leaking fluid into the ground. Very scary situation. Furthermore, the inspector discovered that it wasn’t filled with heating oil… it was filled with diesel. When I looked in the hole I could see the discolored dirt everywhere below the tank. I approached Chris and asked him what he thought. He said “don’t worry Adam, we can dig all out.
In my head I was imagining a $50,000 to $60,000 bill for cleaning this contaminated soil. It took a few weeks to get samples back and to get approval to dump the contaminated soil at a designated waste treatment facility, but when it was done my total bill from Braun excavating was right around $10,000.
I couldn’t have been happier. I really feel that Chris took care of me and didn’t gauge me just because I was in a vulnerable position. I would definitely recommend Chris. He is very serious about his work and he honest about his charges.
