Reported Fossil Fuel Spills in Vermont: January

While the worst spills – Exxon Valdez, BP Deepwater Horizon, the list goes on – rightly get the most attention, the fact is fossil fuel spills happen every day in Vermont and hardly get a mention. There have been more than 18,000 oil spills since Vermont started monitoring them in the 1970s.

In  January alone, more than 1,000 gallons of heating and motor oil spilled in Vermont.
