ASPEN, Colorado — A private environmental-hazards mitigation company says it may have to remove soil contaminated along Capitol Creek Road after a gas tanker overturned.
Teams from Ecos used booms, pads and kitty litter on Thursday night to contain diesel fuel and gasoline that mixed with water in an irrigation ditch.
Crews contained and soaked up the liquid after the overturned tanker's cargo was unloaded into another truck and the vehicle was set upright.
The Aspen Times reports (http://tinyurl.com/mp2h75x ) Ecos is still trying to determine if the fuel got into the creek.
There was no estimate on how much soil might have to be removed.
