The source of a fuel spill in Victoria Harbour on January 11 has not been identified.

The fire brigade and Environment Protection Agency (EPA) attended.

Fire brigade boats attempted dispersed the fuel but the slick and smell was present for days.

An EPA spokesperson said: “EPA officers attended on the day and are still investigating whether any breaches of the Environment Protection Act 1970 have occurred.”

A fire brigade spokesperson said: “MFB were called out at 5.32pm on January 11 to reports of an oil or petrol spill near NewQuay Promenade in Docklands.”

“It’s believed a boat had fuelled up and had somehow managed to dump fuel as they left. MFB’s fire boat attended the incident and did a prop-wash to try and disperse the spill.”

The local rumour was that the fuel was spilled on a building site and flowed into the harbour via the storm water drainage system.
