Lundale, WV Tanker Spill


On January 30, 2018, a tractor trailer tanker was involved in a single vehicle roadway accident that caused the tanker to flip on its side and release about 2,000 gallons of off-road diesel fuel into the environment. Upon immediately reporting the accident and spill to the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP), Shield was retained to provide oversight and direction of abatement activities at the release location. The abatement activities included excavation of 150 tons of impacted soil and the removal of 450 gallons of fuel impacted water. Shield then oversaw the restoration activities which included backfilling the excavation area with similar clean soil, surface grading, seeding, and then straw covering the area. After WVDEP inspection, it was declared the site was adequately remediated and restoration activities were complete. Shield then provided a full Environmental Abatement Report to the WVDEP.
