Diesel spill at Auckland naval base

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 3/05/2016

A leak that could have potentially caused 30,000 litres of diesel to spill at the Devonport Naval Base has stopped short of reaching Auckland's harbour.

Fire crews and hazardous material teams were called to a spill at the base at about a noon on Tuesday where it was reported a 30,000-litre tank was leaking oil.

Council inspectors had confirmed the spill didn't make it into nearby waterways, a Fire Service spokesman said.

He said less than 1500 litres from the tank actually ended up getting out on the ground.
