NJDEP Reports On NJ Diesel Gasoline Spill

NJDEP officials have stated that accident resulted in the discharge of diesel gasoline in the woodlands surrounding the scene that required additional cleanup. Larry Hajna, spokesman for the NJDEP stated that in these situations NJDEP works with the responsible party to employ private contractors in order to avoid using public funds. Reliable Carrier Inc., the responsible party has hired a contractor as of August 17, 2015 and remediation is underway.

Hajna has stated that the environmental impact is currently very minimal. According to the NJDEP, the spill has not discharged into any surrounding waterways to NJDEP’s knowledge.
