Fuel spill contaminates parts of NJ's Timber Creek
WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- Officials say a large diesel fuel spill has contaminated parts of the Big Timber Creek and surrounding lakes near the Gloucester and Washington township borders in southern New Jersey.
Camden County environmental and consumer health services official Ralph Green says about 25,000 gallons of diesel fuel spilled from a New Jersey Transit facility in Washington Township overnight into Thursday, spreading through the soil to Grenloch and Blackwood lakes. He says an underground fuel line near a 30,000-gallon tank ruptured.
State and county hazmat teams are reportedly working to stop the spread of the fuel.
