ATTENTION: NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation Pumping Heating Oil From Home Basements


If you have a home heating oil (HHO) tank and it has leaked into your basement and/or has been damaged by the storm please contact the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation at (718) 482-7376. The Department can come and pump the oil out of your basement or damaged tank. There will be no charge for this service.

When you call, please know the location and size of HHO tank, status of tank (full, partially full, empty), estimated amount of oil released into basement, approximate depth of oil/water in your basement, and accessibility of basement.

Please Note: At this time, the Department is NOT pumping flood waters from basements, only HHO. Homeowners whose boilers may have leaked in their basements. If left uncleaned for long periods of time, this may produce a public health risk.
