Sterling Gravel Pit Vehicle Fluids
- Chumley’s Gravel Pit, Sterling.
- Time/Date of Incident
- On May 5, 2008, ADEC received a report from Mr. Al Self, of vehicles collecting at a gravel pit in Sterling, some of which were leaking various fluids.
- Spill Number
- An undetermined amount of vehicle fluids including glycol, engine lube oil, transmission oil, brake fluids, hydraulic fluids, and differential lubrication.
- The cause was reportedly due to human error when vehicles that had not been drained of fluids were stacked into piles of vehicles that were free of fluids. During this period, many of the vehicles had damage done to parts of vehicles where fluids are held, causing leakage.
