Accident Classified As:
Drip from the transfer line on Refinery Dock #4 caused a release of diesel fuel to the surface of the Mississippi River.
Absorbent materials placed under the drip to contain the material; a boom was used to contain and absorb the sheen on the water surface; vacuum trucks were also used. Note: a subsequent letter from the same day rescinds the report. See below.
