RDU Assesses Cost Of Jet Fuel Leak

Posted August 1, 2005 4:56 a.m. EDT

— RDU International officials do not know how much it will cost to clean up more than 30,000 gallons of jet fuel that leaked on Friday.

The leak started from a crack in an air vent attached to a fuel line.

Crews contained the leak later that day. Air travel was not affected.

An official with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said the leak should have a minimal environmental impact despite its size. Cleanup crews were still working Monday to clean the spill.

Officials have not said what caused the crack that led to the leak.
