Local Verdantas Team Swiftly Responds to Major Gasoline Release
November 17, 2022
An early morning tanker roll-over accident in Norfolk, Connecticut was responsible for the release of over 8,000 gallons of gasoline into the environment. Within a few short hours, Verdantas had mobilized a team and was on-site to begin tackling the extensive clean-up effort.
According to reports, a tanker truck carrying approximately 8,200 gallons of gasoline overturned shortly after 6 a.m. on November 5, 2022. As a result, the leaking gasoline spread into nearby storm drains and residential properties, causing multiple homes to be evacuated. The team is working under direction from representatives from the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (CT DEEP), the Town of Norfolk, and other stakeholders, and participated in a public meeting in the Town on the evening of Tuesday, November 15.
"The response of our team and the dedication they bring to projects like this are a testament to who we are at Verdantas," said Nikki Delude Roy, Senior Consultant and Vice President at Verdantas. "The genuine support of each other and the quality we are bringing to this important field work makes it clear to everyone that what do we every day matters and makes a difference in our local communities."
