Department of Energy and Environmental Protection officials worked with an area environmental company Thursday to clean up an oil spill near Fisher Meadows in Avon, Public Works officials said.
A tree fell down on power lines, pulling down a telephone pole in the parking lot during the overnight wind storm that carried into Thursday, according to
Avon Highway Foreman Paul Welsh. When the pole fell, two transformers attached to it were damaged, causing the leak.
Police learned about the incident around 10 a.m. Thursday, Welsh said.
Traffic on Old Farms Road was not impacted, he said.
DEEP was still on scene as of 3 p.m.
Wind gusts were expected to reach as high as 36 miles an hour in Avon that Thursday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.
