Another Tanker spills 7,000 gallons of fuel into Denver watershed

Here We Go Again

A tanker truck diverted by a road closure crashed last Thursday morning near the town of Jefferson in Park County, spilling an estimated 7,000 gallons of gas and diesel near creeks that flow into Denver's watershed. Park County and Colorado State Patrol crews raced to contain the toxic spill by building a berm.

Denver Water officials were monitoring the damage in a fragile wetlands area known for fine fishing. This happens way too often it seems here in Colorado. Not to thrilled to keep reading about this crap in the news each month!

Damn dude sorry to hear about another spill there. Hate to say this but it could be worse, we just had the Gulf filled up with oil and still getting over that crap. Nonetheless, a spill is never a good thing.

Fishguy- no doubt I think yours had a much greater impact on the Environment and glad things are better your way.

Bigerrfish-yeah no kidding, this happens way too often around here. Hope you've been out fishing a bunch lately~

Boo and Boo. Between spills and all the mining seepage, it is darn depressing!
