Lubricant From Leaky Storage Tank Caused Sheen

Share this post

An oil sheen on Cady Marsh Ditch last week has been identified. The Times reports the a leaking storage tank was the culprit, and the suspected chemical is a lubricant used to keep concrete from sticking to wooden molds. Jacob Hassan, on-scene coordinator for the US Environmental Protection Agency, told us on Monday the source has been determined, but at the time had not been identified, as the investigation continued. Cleanup was anticipated to be completed by Wednesday. The waterway flows from Calumet Township to Munster, emptying into the Little Calumet River.
