Oil spill reported at Port of Albany

Capital New York | August 20, 2014 | Column by Scott Waldman

About 100 gallons of crude oil spilled at the Port of Albany on Wednesday, the state Department of Environmental Conservation said.

The oil did not spill into the Hudson River and was being cleaned up shortly after it was released, a spokesman said.

It was not immediately clear if the oil came from an oil train, but the Port handles millions of gallons of crude every day. The spill occurred on the Global Partners crude-handling site, according to the D.E.C..
