The Unregulated Heating Oil Tank (UHOT) Program was established to address low risk unregulated heating oil tanks with limited to no oversight from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). The program requires that environmental professionals be certified to participate in the program. JM Sorge, Inc. is certified to handle the investigation and remediation of tanks in the UHOT program.
The goal of the program is to facilitate a quick closure of the UHOT cases. As of October 2014, there were 1,303 active cases currently in the UHOT program. Since the program’s inception, 41,889 cases were initiated and 40,420 cases have been closed as of October 2014.
