Emergency Spill Response, Management and Clean-up

When it comes to cleaning up fuel spills, no one in Massachusetts has more hands-on experience than CommTank. With a seasoned staff trained in the most effective practices of fuel spill cleanups, you can be confident that a leak or accident at your business will be handled quickly and efficiently. Our spill response techniques trap and neutralize petroleum products, preventing any further spread and contamination. The best equipment and planning will minimize the occurrence of a spill but unforeseen accidents can trigger a release. 

Some common reasons for fuel spills are:

  • Fuel tank leaks (underground or aboveground)
  • Fuel supply line leaks
  • Overfill at the fill or vent pipes
  • Broken valves or fitting corrosion
  • Level sensor failures 
  • Fuel transfer pump leaks
  • Improper maintenance of secondary containment

We stock our warehouse with a supply of petroleum sorbent products (booms, socks, pads, and particulate sorbents) so we have everything needed to respond to spills, large and small. Our emergency trucks and trailers are also equipped with totes, drums, drain protectors, transfer pumps, negative air machines, supplied air systems, tripod lighting and emergency generators.
