Just curious what else could it be if not a tank (has the same rectangular shape). The sellers do not acknowledge that there is a tank after we performed the sweep and a "tank-like" object has been located in front of the house. They are speculating, maybe a pipe, etc... They have certificates stating it there is nothing there (confusing paper work).

How long does it take to obtain a permit from the town to excavate? Does one need a permit to excavate just to check what it is, without actually taking it out?

Is this the same house your other post is about where they won't remove the tank?

Stormwater detention basin may give you a result showing a tank.

Maybe there could be other probes to determine size without the expense of excavation.

Did you notice that the OP posed his/her question over 2 years ago?
If they chose to excavate, it was probably done...long ago...

Maybe a secret ancient treasure chest? With old gold coins, old weapons, etc?

Yes, old question but still could be relevant for a few home sales…lawyer may recommend a tank sweep to be on the safe side..
Some people may have buried junk cars, etc..you never know! May seem like a waste of money but better safe than sorry later...

The ancient squirrel burial ground. They only use lead-lined caskets.
