Hello Underground Storage Tank Owners,


Capital City Tank Service is pleased to announce the acquisition of a new business, EZ Ground Scan. Together, these two companies can provide all the services necessary to complete your project from start to finish. From location of the tank to excavation and disposal; we do it all, including any environmental services you may need!


The new EZ Ground Scan boasts a completely mobile system that features ground penetrating radar (GPR). GPR is considered extremely accurate at locating metallic and non-metallic objects under the ground surface. The system works by sending a small pulse of energy several feet below the surface. The energy then bounces off the object underground and emits a pulse back to the receiver on the equipment’s display panel indicating the near exact location of the object.


Our services lend themselves so well to both residential homeowners and commercial businesses; we would appreciate you passing along this exciting news. Contracting Capital City Tank Services and EZ Ground Scan will cut down on any unnecessary expenditure by consolidating services. We undertake the full extent of the project and are capable of providing all the necessary services:

  • Tank location
  • Securing necessary permits
  • Excavation
  • Proper cleaning and disposal of the tank
  • Environmental testing
  • Soil disposal
  • Backfill and re-landscaping of the area


Our Environmental team has 17 years of experience and are members of the Applied Science Technologist and Technicians of BC (ASTTBC); a professional organization that requires the highest ethical and moral standards.


As members of the Better Business Bureau, our sole aim is to provide exquisite services to our clients. We follow all the regulatory requirements and have fantastic working relationships with local authorities. Please feel free to contact us to arrange a site visit. We would like to further emphasize our companies’ merits through wonderful reviews of some of our happy clients.


“Capital City Tank Services had to deal with our old tank in our crawlspace as a ‘subject-to’ on the pending sale of our home. It was dirty and messy and uncomfortable but they were able to complete the job in the allotted time AND the real estate deal was a success!”

“Completed the job professionally and quickly.”
