Old Gas Station Leaking

Post by lastone » Thu Mar 01, 2007 10:51 pm

The location of an old gasoline station is oozing gas as heavy rains continue here in downtown Barboursville. The site (a former Teaxco I think) is now a dual up stairs apartment over garage area and has in years past been a UPS location. The gas station has been gone since the 60's. Receint construction of new apartments next door may have disturbed the underground tanks which were not removed. Within yards of the location is the fire station, a senior apartment building next door and others. No word on what is leaking, gasoline or diesel, but I do know the EPA and DNR have been called.

I wonder which station (3 or 13) will get it right, or even mention it!

And the answer is: NEITHER!

No one was murdered or arrested or cheering a surfing dog, so no mention.

A potentially dangerous situation gets no coverage......it didn't blow up.

OOPS.....Ok...so I put this in the wrong header...hey, I'm old!
