The oil spill could have come from any number of boats at the Pequott Yacht Club

Shortly after 1pm Fairfield Fire Department responded to a call from a Harbor Road residence of a strong odor of oil and an oily slick in the water.  Fire officials working with information from residences downstream,  quickly determined the spill came from the Pequot Yacht Club at 669 Harbor Road.  Fire officials tell us the spill was minimal of about 1-2 gallons.  The Department of Environmental Protection handled the clean up.  It hasn’t been determined the exact cause for the spill.  ©2011
