Ricker’s BP Fishers Location Poses No Environmental Risks

Indianapolis, IN – Creek Run Environmental Engineering said there is no risk to drinking water nor does the incident pose any environmental risks. Ricker’s will continue to monitor the area in the coming days.

Ricker’s estimates less than 30 gallons of fuel were spilled while being transferred from one tank to another by a third party Monday morning at the Ricker’s BP in Fishers at 116th Street and Cumberland Road.

The fuel made its way into a nearby storm drain, but Ricker’s moved swiftly and captured the fuel before it made its way from the drain and posed any risks to the environment. Representatives from the Town of Fishers and emergency crews were dispatched to the 116th and Cumberland Road Ricker’s location to ensure the safety of the area and took a necessary precaution of shutting down a nearby shopping center.

Creek Run Environmental Engineering was also called to the site and made a full investigation, which included a series of readings for both in-ground and airborne particles.

Jason Shriner, Head of Operations Group at Creek Run Environmental Engineering, said there is no risk to drinking water nor does the incident pose any environmental risks. Ricker’s will continue to monitor the area in the coming days.
