Description
[Back to Top]

On 9/12/07, a fire broke out in a 1940’s circa hanger at the Danbury Municipal Airport in Danbury Connecticut. The hanger, leased by Reliant Air, contained a number of private planes and was destroyed in the fire. The CT Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) was informed the following day and upon inspection with an EPA On-Scene Coordinator determined that an unknown amount of fuel oil had been discharged to the surrounding area, including a tributary to the Still River. In addition, ash-like material which was believed to contain asbestos was found scattered on the ground in the immediate vicinity and as far as one mile in a downwind direction. The potentially responsible party (PRP), Reliant Air, hired a cleanup contractor who began cleaning up the released fuel and suspect asbestos containing material (ACM). The contractor was working under the direction of the DEP. EPA was asked by the DEP to supply personnel for oversight and documentation purposes.
