Oil Spill at Reno-Tahoe Intl. Airport

Reno-area environmental officials at this hour are trying to find the origin of a minor oil spill that was discovered by an employee at Reno-Tahoe International Airport this morning.

The spill was first discovered by a security officer while patrolling the southwest corner of the airport property at around 8:30. After initial inspection, city and county inspectors determined that the spill came from outside the airport property through a storm drainage ditch that passes through the property.

The spill has been contained and officials say while the amount of oil flowing through the ditch is still being measure, it appears to be a relatively small amount at this point.
