Does anyone know the story behind the the hole dug on the corner then left exposed? Guessing the sideways pallets are supposed to act as safety fencing. Will be a year soon we been looking at this mess. Clean up is overdue.

Is that right?? Or are you guessing? Do you also happen to know when it will be pulled up out of the ground and that pit will be backfilled?? Seems to me it would be a simple matter to pump out with a portable pump any remaining oil in the tank into containers and haul it to a recycler or burn it, then test the soil underneath, then fill the pit. I saw it done last year on This Old House. They pulled the tank out of the ground with a heavy-duty chain and a backhoe. There was some oil in the soil underneath that had to be removed by digging down with the backhoe until there were no furher traces of fuel oil. Seems like there has been an open pit on that corner for a few years now with no signs of progress on its being refilled.

Who can get this mess fixed? I think they need a push. Who would want this outside their house anyway? No pride. Surprised everyone in the vicinity has allowed this for so long.

Call the codes enforcer. Not sure what the regulations are. Dont know if you can just pull it out of ground and fill back in. Sure there is holes on bottom of tank and oil in ground.

Oh Yeah, looking at an unsightly mess with bright orange cones is def the same as your poor analogy of TV programs.

You must be either affiliated with these ppl OR you live in a trashcan yourself.

Your ignorance is showing, Duh.

It's a 4way stop sign. It REQUIRES you to look.
Hope you don't drive, Duh...you're not qualified.

If it is indeed an underground tank, then it is not simply a matter of removing and backfilling the hole. EPA and/or DEC would be involved to do testing and overseeing clean up of the site. Instead of this rubbish posting on topix, you'd be better suited calling the village offices and find out what is going on there.

If breathing weren't an involuntary action, I swear some of you would forget to. No shortage of dim bulbs out there.
