Site Name: Sleetmute School Spill

Petroleum impacted soil strongly suspected on school property (6/5/1997) where an underground fuel line from the generator building connected to the day tank. Spill quantity uncertain but estimated in hundreds of gallons based on fuel supply gauging. Fencing temporarily restricted access and then a new fuel line was installed and some soils removed to a liner by School maintenance personnel. Community drinking water well within 50 feet of heating oil storage tank and supply lines has thus far shown no petroleum contaminants. Prevention and Emergency Response Program (PERP) staff confirmed soil staining and fuel odors and did some shallow digs (7/30/1997) near the annex to test soils with an HNU and found no levels of contamination where historical spills were suspected to have taken place.
