Aircraft Fueling at Joseph - KJSY

The Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established stringent regulations for the routine handling, disposal and/or accidental release (spills) of aircraft fuel and other petroleum based products – complete with significant fines/penalties for non-compliance.

IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT…aircraft owners are financially responsible (and will be billed) for any environmental issues created by their aircraft. This includes accidental spills regardless of the cause [e.g. owner or operator negligence, vandalism, act of nature (tornado), etc.]

We offer these safety tips and best practices to prevent accidental spills and minimize financial obligation:

1. Secure (tie down) aircraft in anticipation of adverse weather including strong gusting winds.

2. Make sure aircraft is on level ground. If not, adjust fuel levels or plug fuel tank vents to prevent leaks.

3. Be careful when fueling aircraft. Over-fueling often causes fuel to run onto the ground and accumulations equate to contamination.

4. When checking aircraft fuel levels, do not dump sumped fuel on the ground.

5. Place pans under any leaking fuel or oil from aircraft.

6. Properly dispose of surplus fuels (sumped fuel and/or fuel collected from leaks)
