Fuel Spill Cleanup Completed 

A major cleanup has was finally completed in Thomaston Saturday, after a fuel spill.

It happened Friday along the Saint George River, just a short distance from the Wadsworth Street bridge.

The Department of Environmental Protection says the spill came from a yacht that was using a broken fuel pump.

Between 400 and 600 gallons leaked into the river…and the DEP has set up barriers to protect oyster beds in the area.

The bill for the cleanup is being sent to the yacht’s owner.
