Fuel Leak Contained At Port Of Rensselaer


New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Saturday directed assistance from the state Department of Environmental Conservation to the Buckeye Terminal at the Port of Rensselaer where 600 gallons of gasoline was spilled.

The fuel leak was caused by an equipment failure brought on by a sudden power outage during local thunderstorms.

The leak is currently controlled in a secondary containment and DEC remained on the scene to monitor containment and cleanup.

The Governor reiterated his call for New Yorkers to take precautions during storm events.
