More than 1,000 gallons of diesel fuel that began contaminating a small stream and surrounding soil near Piney Run Park in Sykesville more than a year ago has prompted a remediation effort by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Samples tested have determined that the leak is No. 2 diesel fuel, often used in heating oil, said Charles Fitzsimmons, on-site coordinator for the EPA. The agency installed a dam last spring to block further spillage into the unnamed creek that is downstream from Piney Run Lake, a potential drinking water source for Carroll County.
