Oil spill at P.O.A...no need to panic...
Posted Thursday, August 21st 2014 @ 12pm

A small oil spill at the Global Partners tank farm at the Port of Albany yesterday. The State Department of Environmental Conservation reports about 100 gallons of crude oil was contained in an area about 10 feet in diameter, and did not reach the Hudson River. Early indications are that the spill was the result of a holding tank malfunction, and not from one of the tanker cars that pass through the port on a daily basis, which has prompted much fear and loathing in the immediate community. County Executive Dan McCoy says while there was good communication between the city and county, and with DEC, that led to a quick response, the county heard nothing directly from Global Partners.
