Chester gasoline cleanup hasn't impacted river

Posted: Updated:
CHESTER, Vt. (AP) - Authorities say a 2,000-gallon gasoline spill near a river in the town of Chester, Vermont, has not reached the water.

The spill happened last week when a tractor-trailer owned by P&H Transportation of New Hampshire rolled over onto its side on Route 11 West.

The Eagle-Times reports the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources will continue to monitor the site as an agency contracted by P&H works to remove any fuel in the groundwater.

Officials say the spill did not reach a nearby branch of the Williams River.
