The U.S. Army built an 8-inch diameter steel pipeline to carry fuel over 600 miles from Haines to Fairbanks in the 1950s. It operated for over a decade and over that time there were numerous spills. One of them was a rupture at a pump station near Haines in the late 1960s. “Approximately 33,600 gallons of fuel were released, ” said Will Mangano, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers technical lead of the project. That 33,000 gallons is about 800 barrels of fuel. … For the entire story, see https://khns.org/fifty-years-after-the-fuel-spill-u-s-army-corps-of-engineers-plans-to-clean-up-contamination-on-the-chilkat-river -- Lenny Siegel Executive Director Center for Public Environmental Oversight A project of the Pacific Studies Center LSiegel@cpeo.org P.O.
