Product/ Quantity
An estimated 15,000 to 20,000 gallons of #2 Diesel was released from a bulk oil storage tank into secondary containment. The quantity of the spill was estimated by AVEC personal on-site by reviewing current tank capacities against recent tank capacity records prior to the spill. The exact amount is still under investigation.
A valve was added to a header line on a 29,950 gallon bulk fuel tank as a temporary fix to alleviate an airlock. The valve was not removed at the appropriate time and left in an open position allowing diesel to flow to the ground.
