Ruptured fuel line causes diesel spill on board Seabee base
The Naval Construction Battalion Center’s Public Works Department and Environmental team currently are in the midst cleanup efforts due to a diesel fuel spill.
A refrigerator truck parked by warehouses near the 28th Street fence line ruptured a fuel line overnight Wednesday night and spilled up to 80 gallons of diesel fuel.
The fuel spill was reported at about 7:30 a.m. Thursday and Public Works staff and Fire Department began work containing the spill.
The fuel ran into a drainage ditch on base and was contained by about 8:45 a.m. Public Works staff used booms and absorbent pads to contain and then clean up the spill. There are no indications that any fuel leaked outside the fence line.
The cause of the ruptured fuel line is under investigation.
