Fuel Spill Cleanup Bill Reaches $500,000

Officials say the cost of cleaning up a gasoline spill in the community of Fountain Hills has reached $500,000. A ruptured United Petroleum Transports tanker spilled 2300 gallons of gasoline at a drive-thru between restaurants on November 17th. The company says the tanker collided with a large trash bin enclosure, causing the rupture and spill. Town Manager Ken Buchanan tells The Arizona Republic that United Petroleum Transports plans to reimburse the town for that cost and has hired a business to handle remediation.
