IMTT Officials Speak to Public About Oil Leak

IMTT Bayonne Terminal Manager Michael Morganti makes a point during his presentation.

BAYONNE, NJ - Officials from International-Matex Tank Terminals briefed the public about the cause of a Feb. 22 heating oil leak in an eastside park and promised to continue to monitor the site as well as make improvements to it.

The company held a public meeting on March 23 at the Chandelier Restaurant on Broadway, at which spokesmen discussed the Halecky-IMTT Park incident and answered residents' questions. About 30 people attended.

IMTT had said in a statement the week before that a third-party company had inadvertently damaged an IMTT pipeline during work on it.

Terminal Manager Michael Morganti said that IMTT determined that about 150 barrels of oil were missing from the pipeline. IMTT has removed soil which had been penetrated by the oil and refilled the ground.

Morganti said that the cleanup was completed, and that the park had been reopened. He said site remediation had begun and that it was not yet known how long that process would take. In the meantime, he urged residents to contact him about possible improvements that they would like to see at the park.

Among the park upgrades already expected were the planting of new trees, the fixing of lights that had not been working, and the replacement of broken benches.

Morganti said the company might also install cameras that would feed into Bayonne Police Headquarters to increase safety.
