The quantity of diesel that leaked was reported to the department on March 16th by ECS as 1,369 gallons. An investigation is underway to verify the quantity of fuel released from the line.
The release was from a genset (a shipping container with a generator and a 2,475‐gallon fuel tank inside) on the APL yard. Details about how the release occurred remain under investigation. Rainfall caused the fuel to enter runoff flow across the yard into a drainage ditch adjacent to the yard. Fuel and runoff flowed from the drainage ditch into a culvert that flowed into a tributary of the Buskin River. From the tributary it flowed into the Buskin River and into St. Paul Harbor.
