This will be a total of 40 hours the road will have been closed for a 1000 gallon spill. If we average 10 men on site that's 400 man hours to upright a tanker, pump out the gas into another tanker and mop up the spill.
That's 2.5 gallons per man hour. Or 5 gph for 5 men on site.
It seem's to me we are having excessive amounts of delayed traffic and clean up times for accidents in the recent years.
Come on "COP" you stats failed to counted all the supervisor standing around watching the 2.5 workers. As for the gas on the ground one match would have solved the problem. On the plus side think of all the visitors that got to see Chinese Camp.
I wanted a hodown. Not a shudown.
big money in Hazmat clean up is the answer. Years ago there was a diesel spill on the roof of the Union Democrat of less than 100 gallons. It cost thousands to clean it up when the diesel hit the street.
Cop, you did not factor in the amount of dirt that is soaked with fuel that needs to be dug up and removed... It probably takes a lot longer than you think.
Never been to a shudown...
