Spill Assessment

A Schneider Foods transport truck (owned by Maple Leaf Foods Inc.) was involved in a collision while enroute to Brantford, Ontario. The transport truck was struck by a vehicle on the passenger side and the fuel tank was ruptured. As a result of the ruptured fuel tank, an estimated 620 litres of diesel fuel was spilled onto the asphalt and concrete curb spillway along the highway.

Soil Verification Sampling

In September 2013, a transport truck owned by a USA-based hauling company rolled-over at an intersection outside of Fort Erie, Ontario. As a result of the truck roll-over, approximately 17,000-liters of diesel fuel was released to the asphalt road surface. During the release, a significant quantity of diesel fuel entered a catch basin at the intersection, which discharged to Frenchman’s Creek.
