On September 9, 2016, at 1449 hours, Colonial Pipeline reported to the National Response Center that there was a gasoline spill from a 36” below-ground pipeline. Gasoline traveled overland for approximately 500 feet to a pond that feeds into the Peel Creek which is a tributary of the Cahaba River. Colonial has estimated the amount of gasoline released to be at least 6,000 barrels, or 252,000 gallons. On-Scene Coordinators, Superfund Technical Assessment and Response Team Contractors and the United States Coast Guard Gulf Strike Team were deployed to the incident.
