A tip from a concerned resident alerted fire and rescue units to a leak in a fuel line Tuesday at Skull Creek Marina on Hilton Head Island.
The leak, which appeared to be minor, was in the line that supplies fuel to the pumps at the marina's dock. It does not appear to have dispersed a significant amount of fuel into the marsh, according to a news release.
Once crews from Hilton Head Island Fire & Rescue confirmed the leak, more units were called to the scene to help contain it. Workers first patched the leak, then covered and clamped it to protect the piping until the marina can replace it.
A representative from the S.C. Department of Health & Environmental Control will monitor the situation until the piping is replaced, the release said.
