Could someone tell me who to call to find out if there is a fuel oil tank in the yard? also my water has what looks like oil in it or fuel oil. It has that glossy fuel look that I can see in my coffee. How can I tell what is in my water. Somehow I think this is connected to each other. And it is not dish soap........:-)

Dinosaurus - hi, you can call any of your local fuel oil suppliers and ask if they've made deliveries of fuel oil to your address before. (That's how I found out who the previous owner of my house receive propane deliveries - the tank wasn't labeled. They maintained records which they cross-checked every so often with the other local companies. They looked up my address and told me who my propane supplier was.) My mother-in-law uses fuel oil for heating and she has a steel pipe, about 4 inches in diameter, with a screw-on cap - all painted white - that sticks up about 2 feet above ground in a flower bed next to the house.

You can also take a sample of the water and get it tested for a reasonable fee. Your local government offices should be able to tell you where testing can be done. It'd let you know what's contaminating your water which could help you locate the source of the contaminant. Good luck! Jim D/West Point, VA
