Fuel leak postpones Old Harbor project by Peter Voskamp and Dan West Block Island Times (RI) January 23, 2010The Old Harbor renovation project, which was just getting underway in recent weeks, will be postponed until next fall due to gasoline contamination discovered by contractors in the soil near south dock last week. Town Manager Nancy Dodge made the announcement at Wednesday's Town Council meeting.
As of press time neither the extent nor the source of the contamination was known; a geoprobe was expected to be on the island Thursday to learn more.
