Tests in PA Confirm Contamination Near Old Fuel Leak

July 22, 2010 - Residents near a Susquehanna Twp. gas station where a 17-year-old fuel leak was never cleaned up weren't surprised to hear that levels of benzene and other contaminants appear to exceed acceptable levels in some spots around their homes.

But until the extent of the contamination is known, homeowners won't have a good idea what the cleanup will involve.

More than two dozen residents of Redwood and Alden streets, behind the gas station at Progress Avenue and Union Deposit Road, gathered at Progress Fire Hall Wednesday evening to learn the preliminary results of geologist Gary Calvert's probe into leaks from the station.
