    Another “blown out of proportion” situation.

    Semi trucks carry approximately 100 gallons of diesel fuel in the saddle tanks, therefore NOT a simple gas spill. If it had reached the storm sewers on the road there would be a much bigger problem and the EPA would be all over it. I noticed the “booms” placed at the sewers on the road, holding tank placed under the leaking vessel, and a special truck brought out to offload the remaining diesel before it too leaked out. The Street Dept dig a great job taking care of the diesel leaked onto Wooster road for about a mile and the Fire Dept did a great job handling the Hazmat situation.

    Then it was a fuel spill not a chemical spill.

      Fuel is a chemical and is flammable and therefore a hazardous substance.
