Cleanup Continues At Storm Damaged Marina

KSAL StaffAugust 7, 2013

Cleanup continues at the El Dorado Reservoir where winds earlier this week caused a fuel spill and damaged several boats and docks at the Shady Creek Marina.

El Dorado State Park manager Seth Turner said Tuesday that the fuel spill is contained and crews were pumping water from a houseboat that was largely under water after winds estimated at 80 to 100 mph swept over the state park Monday evening.

An estimated 75 to 100 gallons of fuel spilled when lines running from the shore to pumps at the marina were broken. Some also came from the houseboat.

Turner says he is confident an absorbent boom stopped the spread of the spilled fuel. The storm also twisted the walkway to the marina.
