Fluid Spilled in Lakeside Park Marina

Fond du Lac Fire and Rescue responded to Lakeside Park Marina Wednesday morning for the report of a possible oil slick in the water. At the scene, Fire Chief Peter O’Leary told us there was a leak in the hydraulic line of a boat docked in the marina. The sheen of the fluid was visible across part of the harbor, and crews brought in absorbing pads to surround and clean up the leak. There is not a large amount fluid in hydraulic lines, and O’Leary says once again, small amounts of oil – or fluid – spreading across the water can often look worse than it may actually be.
