Waste Site Cleanup & Reuse in New England
West Haven Heating Old Spill
On Dec. 14, 2009 a release of heating oil was reported to the West Haven, Conn., Police and Fire Departments and the Conn. Dept. of Environmental Protection. A tanker truck parked at the A. Laugeni & Son, a painting contractor for bridges, had a faulty valve that caused the petroleum to be released to the ground, the street, and the Cove River at 370 Ardale St. in West Haven. Initially, the report indicated about 200 gallons of product had been released, some of which had made it to the Cove River, a tributary that ultimately ends at the Long Island Sound. Based on the oil recovered by vacuum trucks, it became clear that a minimum of 500 gallons had been released. CTDEEP and the U.S. Coast Guard initially responded. EPA played a limited support role.
Location: 370 Ardale St., West Haven, Conn.
