Report Description
CALLER STATED A MOTOR VEHICLE STRUCK A POLE HOLDING A TRANSFORMER. THIS RESULTED IN THE TRANSFORMER COMING DOWN AND A SPILL OF NON PCB TRANSFORMER OIL. CALLER STATED THE SPILL REACHED A STORM DRAIN DUE TO A SEWAGE LINE FROM A GAS STATION THAT IS BACKED UP. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: CALLER STATED THE SEWAGE LINE FROM THE GAS STATION IS BACKED UP AND IS LEAKING BIO-HAZARD FLUIDS OUT OF THE BLACKTOP RIGHT ALONG THE ROAD. CALLER STATED THOSE FLUIDS ARE GOING UPSTREAM OF THE OIL IMPACT OF THE GROUND SO THE BIO-HAZARD FLUIDS ARE PICKING UP THE OIL AND HAVE PUT THE SPILLED TRANSFORMER OIL INTO THE STORM DRAIN AS EVERYTHING FLOWS TOWARD THE STORM DRAIN. CALLER STATED THE SPILL FROM THE TRANSFORMER WOULD HAVE WENT ONTO THE BLACKTOP/CONCRETE BUT SINCE THE SEWAGE LINE IS BACKED UP THE SPILL HAS REACHED THE STORM DRAIN.
