Donner Lake Tanker Spill 2010

Donner Lake Tanker Spill 2010 The Department of Fish and Game (DFG) and Nevada County Environmental Health (NCEH) are responding to a diesel spill that occurred on May 26 which when a tanker truck overturned and spilled as much as 3,000 gallons of diesel fuel along I-80 on the west side of Donner Lake. Some of the material washed over the side of the interstate into the soil and watershed of Billy Mack and Summit Creeks. Summit Creek and Donner Lake water test show no diesel detected, but crews will continue to monitor the water. Operations now focus on mapping the extent of soil contamination to create a plan for soil removal. Please go to DFG OSPR site, below, for updates on cleanup.
