BUCHANAN, N.Y. The U.S. Coast Guard estimates that about 3,000 gallons of dielectric fluid from the transformer that recently failed and caught fire at Buchanans Indian Point have flowed into the Hudson River, according to a press release.
In cooperation with federal officials, Entergy officials have established a telephone hotline and email account for people to share information about possible transformer fluid sightings.
Anyone with information about potential transformer fluid sightings is asked to call 800-472-6372 or send an email .
Residents are asked to provide their name, phone number, where they believe they say the oil sheen, the date and approximate time, and any other information that will help environmental officials locate the discharged fluid. Photos would also be very helpful.
The investigation into what caused the Unit 3 transformer to fail and catch fire, along with remediation efforts, is ongoing, according to Entergy.
