Tractor trailer wreck spills fuel
SoVaNow.com / July 25, 2013754
CommentsInteresting that the focus here is not on injury or property damage, but solely on a fuel spill. Yes, I know state and federal law prohibit even a drop of petroleum spilled near any navigable waterway, but the wreck location is a good half-mile from the Rio Dan with only a slight possibility of it reaching the river via one of the lowgrounds' drainage ditches.
The spill and contaminated earth will be mitigated, and the trucking company will get slapped with an EPA fine which will be earmarked for something frivolous such as happened when Danville paid a $75000 fine over an exceedance at its old Brantley powerplant- which was earmarked to study mating habits of some obscure turtle.
And you try to tell me the EPA is anything but a money grab?
