Contractor Fails to Adequately Maintain Jet Fuel Equipment

Acknowledgement to Great American

A ruptured fuel hose spilled a few thousand gallons of jet fuel onto the ground at a regional airport. The fuel eventually reached an adjacent river. The contractor responsible for fueling operations paid significant clean-up costs for soil and groundwater as a result of failing to adequately maintain the fueling equipment. Remediation included excavating contaminated soil as well as clean-up of groundwater and surface water. The contractor was also assessed a fine for natural resource damages due to the impact upon the river habitat.
