Gallons of Hydraulic Fluid Leak

A garbage truck broke a fuse line today, leaking more than 40 gallons of hydraulic fluid on an Eau Claire street.

Eau Claire County Patrol Sergeant Steve Miescke says a Veolia Environmental Service garbage truck leaked the fluid around 11 a.m. this morning on Skeels Ave. near London Rd.

Traffic was blocked off the area for a couple hours while crews cleaned up the spill. The roads have since opened.
