OIL IN GROUNDWATER AN INDUSTRY'S ANALYSIS AND REMEDIAL ACTION
A combination of inadequate locomtive procedures and the repetitive failure of underground fuel lines totalling more than 700 feet caused seepage into groundwater by Number 2 diesel fuel from diesel locomotive fueling facilities at a major terminal of Milwaukee Road. This paper describes the techniques used by the railroad to determine the extent, thickness, direction, and velocity of the spilled product, the methods used in recovery of the spilled product, and some problems ecncountered along the way.
