dome lid of truck
Cause: A lube oil spill occurred after a truck driver left the dome lid of his truck open while transporting the product from Calumet Princeton. The driver discovered the dome lid was open prior to leaving the facility and that any oil spilled was negligible.

Followup: No

Notes: United Petroleum Transport self reported about 35-40 gallons of Casol 5550 (lube oil) discharged from dome lid for about 5 miles when discovered by driver. Spill was BRQ. Company report indicated that truck did not leave facility prior to discovery of dome lid. The second report from the facility basically rescinds the first report. The reportable quantity for lube oil is 1 barrel or 42 gallons, but the representative of Calumet Lubricants later assured the LDEQ that the spill was BRQ.
