Stepney Fire, along with Stevenson and Monroe companies, were called out about 9:30 Monday morning to the scene of an accident on Judd Road involving an oil delivery truck that left the roadway and struck a tree and caused a rupture of the truck’s 2,500 gallon oil tank.
The units are working on mitigating the spill with Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP).
DEEP said they recovered around 380 gallons from the delivery truck’s tank, so 1,700 gallons made their way to the ground.
DEEP is now working with an environmental contractor to come up with a recovery plan.
Judd Road was closed down between North Street in Easton and Hattertown Road in Monroe and is expected to remain closed for 48 hours.
