STANLEY DRAINAGE SYSTEM CONTAMINATED WITH FUEL

By J. Brock (FINN)

A fuel contamination of the drainage system has affected Malvina House Hotel and also initiated a number of calls from concerned residence in the local area.

The Public Works Department have been actively searching since Thursday and are systematically lifting all the manhole covers to trace the leak back to source. A thorough investigation is being carried out to trace the fuel contamination of the drainage system. PWD have narrowed the search area to around Hackett’s Hill, Drury St, Pioneer Row and Brandon Rd. A request has gone out over FIRS this morning for people in that area to check their fuel tanks for any sign of leakage.
The investigation is ongoing and management have also been assisting in trying to determine where the fuel is coming from.

A further update will be provided once the investigation is completed.
