Muskegon Community College could have to pay as much as $140,000 to clean up a December fuel spill, where 450 gallons of diesel fuel leaked onto the college's property.

Administrators say the fuel tank, located near the college's grounds department, sprung a leak around Christmas, and the fuel seeped into the surrounding soil.

Rosemary Zink, MCC's vice president of finance and administration, said the fuel spill is not a danger to public health.

“It has not gone into our groundwater,” Zink said.

She said cleanup and monitoring of the contaminated area could continue two to three years. The college's insurance is expected to cover only about $10,000 of the cost of the cleanup. The total cost of the cleanup could cost as much as $150,00.

The college has contracted with Bennett Engineering, which has advised the college on how to proceed with the cleanup.
