Press Release - Riverside Hospital Diesel Release

Riverside Hospital Diesel Release.

Early Tuesday morning (8-23-22), the City of Trenton was notified of a “sheen” observed in the river. The City notified the property owner near the privately owned storm drain and began a coordinated response involving the EPA, EGLE, Trenton Fire Department, Trenton Department of Public Works, and the property owner. The sheen was later confirmed to be diesel fuel.

As of mid-day Thursday the site is still being remediated and measures are being taken to prevent any further issues. The EPA has remained on scene as have City of Trenton representatives and contractors hired by NABA Management (the owners of the former Riverside Hospital site). NABA Management has paid for the entire cost of cleanup thus far.

The leak appears to have originated from a storage tank on the north side of the property and the diesel fuel traveled through the private storm sewer system to the river. The amount of material released appears to be approximately 5 gallons according to the EPA.

It should be noted that all parties (Property owners, EPA, EGLE, Coast Guard, and the City of Trenton) involved collaborated together to provide a quick and effective response that limited the impact and will surely speed cleanup.

The protection of our waterfront and natural resources remains of utmost importance to the City of Trenton and its residents, and we will continue to work with officials at every level to ensure this situation is completely cleaned up and remediated and no further issues may arise.
