Accident Classified As: Below Reportable Quantity (BRQ)
On May 13, 2013 at approximately 1030 hrs, 1 barrel of crude oil was discovered. After further investigation, it was discovered that within our dike area of our storm water sump pump, a total of 50 gallons was spilled over a 48 hour period.
Oil was recovered from earthen sump using absorbent materials and a vacuum truck. Impacted soil excavated from impacted area for disposal. Some reports state 1 barrel, or 42 gallons, spilled and others state 50 gallons have been released. Notification considered a courtesy, although the RQ for crude oil is 1 barrel.
