Fuel spill threatens Vistula River
July 17, 2014
Trace amount of Mazut fuel oil leaked into the Vistula river from the Kozienice coal power plant in Poland, some 80 kilometers southeast of Poland.
A malfunction at the plant on Wednesday caused a leakage of about nine tons of the fuel, however it was stopped by a protective barrier before it could enter the river. Yet, some "trace" amounts entered the river.
Firefighters were working to remove the fuel that did enter the Vistula.
