Oil Spill on the Bayfront on Port Dock 5 early Tuesday morning

Update on the diesel fuel spill: The Coast Guard says the clean up is complete. They say fuel oil always floats to the top where it stays until it evaporates. It does not go down in to the ground or contaminate the nearby groundwater. In this case, as in others, the fuel oil was sucked up by an environmental clean-up company. Approximately 700 gallons of diesel fuel was spilled when a transfer pump overfilled a storage tank – and the fuel cascaded into the bay. The Coast Guard said “The investigation is continuing.”

According to one of the hazmat team, there was a fuel oil spill at port 5 dock when a boat transferring fuel failed to monitor a fuel transfer pump and a tank overflowed.

Fuel oil tends to float at the surface so retrieving it by skimming and pumping is easier.


Local authorities including the Coast Guard were monitoring the fuel oil recovery operations all day.
