Letter to the Editor - May 16: Testing after water in fuel

THE images of cars breaking down at a local service station as posted online highlight a very real concern for Coffs Creek.

Although water is commonly found inside underground fuel tanks, when it's at such an extent to stop cars in their tracks metres from the bowsers, well that is just inexcusable.

Major questions need to be asked now.

If water is getting into the tanks at such a volume one questions are these same tanks leeching petrol into the ground and ground water?

This service station is at the base of a hill, and if there is a leak there's the potential of fuel contamination in Coffs Creek, which sits directly across the road.

I intend on raising this issue with the Environmental Protection Authority and relevant environment and regulatory bodies, so any concerns can be identified or put to rest.
