Upper Delaware Diesel Spill

Upper Delaware Diesel Spill

There was a spill of up to 4,000 gallons of diesel fuel from a train derailment  into the Upper Delaware River near Deposit, NY early Thursday morning.   For more info, click here.

If you are on the River and observe any impacts, please see below to report them.

Action item!

The NY Department of Environmental Conservation is asking everybody who spends time on or near the river to contact them if they see any evidence of impacts to wildife/habitat or fuel oil build-up, especially in the quiet eddies and pools near the riverbanks.  Look for a reddish/brownish sheen on the surface of the river that looks similar to brake fluid or transmission fluid.Please take a picture of any observed impacts with GPS coordinates and send them to if you see negative impacts of the spill and we'll forward them to the NYSDEC.
