Spill mi­nor

Auckland City Harbour News - - FRONT PAGE -

A diesel spill at Westhaven Ma­rina on Tues­day was con­tained by a float­ing boom and not con­sid­ered se­ri­ous. The Auck­land Har­bour­mas­ter’s of­fice con­firms a spill was re­ported about 7am but a mar­itime re­sponse co-or­di­na­tor de­scribes it as mi­nor and says no fur­ther ac­tion was re­quired. Wa­ter­front Auck­land spokesman Luke Hen­shall says the leak oc­curred near X Pier but it was con­tained and of no real threat to the en­vi­ron­ment. ‘‘Diesel tends to evap­o­rate quite quickly,’’ he says.
