Sarah Hearne with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources reports a diesel fuel spill occurred at 921 Industrial Drive in Trenton last week.

An incident report states Trenton City Administrator/Utility Director Ron Urton called the Environmental Emergency Response Spill Line November 5th to report the release of about 70 gallons of diesel fuel on a parking lot due to excavation equipment damaging a diesel fuel line to a Trenton Municipal Utilities generator.

A sump pump was used to remove free product, and contaminated gravel was excavated. The incident report notes the fuel did not leave the facility property or impact any waterways.
