I have a 1960 split level home. In the back there is a cement patio.

About a foot and a half past the patio there is a pipe in the ground.

Recently as the weather gets cooler I have been smelling fuel oil and I do not have fuel oil. Do you think this pipe is part of a fuel oil tank from years ago?

Who can tell me this answer, who do I call?

Beyond the patio in the yard I was able to determine that at one point there was a septic tank used in the yard. I used dowsing roads to determine the outline of a tank. Who can I call to help me determine what this pipe is and if it is septic or has something to do with fuel oil. Thanks.

The pipe in the back yard is not capped. So who do I call to come and tell me what this pipe is. I thought it has something to do with fuel because periodically I smell fuel oil. Does one have to dig up the tank and remove it?

Would the township be able to tell me what it is? I am the second owner of the home and it was built in 1960. So I dont know which direction to go . Thanks

So who can tell me what this pipe is. It is in the ground and no part of the pipe is sticking up.
