Not many houses in Hudson are heated with oil, but if yours is, and your oil tank is more than fifteen years old, this lecture, co-sponsored by the Columbia County Historical Society and the Historic Committee for the Town of Kinderhook, will be of interest to you.
There is no way to predict if or when an oil tank will fail. Both above ground and underground tanks have the potential to create environmental problems to lead to costly remediation.
On Saturday, January 26, Toni Hokanson, director of marketing and training for C2G Environmental Consultants, will address how to determine if your oil tank is a candidate for replacement before it becomes an environmental hazard and how to go about the process of oil tank abandonment if your tank has leaked or is buried. Also, Cailey Nieto, public health technician with the Columbia County Health Department, will make a presentation on fire extinguishers--what we should know about them and where to have them filled or checked.
The lecture, which is free and open to the public, takes place from 1:30 to 2:30 on Saturday, January 26, in the meeting room at the Martin H. Glynn Municipal Building, 3211 Church Street, in Kinderhook.
