The Jankovich Company
, a San Pedro, Calif. based fuel and lubricant distributor, assumed financial responsibility of the estimated 210-gallon Los Angeles Harbor fuel spill clean up.
The Coast Guard and California Department of Fish and Game, Office of Spill Prevention and Response will continue to monitor recovery operations being conducted by Patriot Environmental Services. The clean up is expected to be completed by Wednesday afternoon.
Under the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, assuming financial responsibility
is not an admission of fault. The actual source and cause of the fuel spill remains under investigation.
