Case Study: Juniper Beach diesel spill

Supplier: CI Agent Solutions
13 December, 2010

A semi truck with failing brakes ran onto the Juniper Beach boat ramp and ruptured a saddle tank.

Approximately 40 gallons of diesel fuel spilled.

An environmental company estimated clean-up to take 2 days using booms, pads and a VAC truck.

First responders on-site were the Louisville Fire Department using C.I.Agent for the first time.

C.I.Agent Solutions also responded by delivering product and assisting Chief Fredricks in containing and cleaning the spill. A boat and hard boom were deployed, but actually hindered clean-up. The VAC truck was not needed.
