Nazareth gas spill is still contaminating the water supply

NAZARETH, Pa. - Officials say there is some contamination after a gas spill in Northampton County.

Last month 175 gallons of gasoline were spilled at the Shell gas station at East Walnut and New streets in Nazareth.

Officials say a worker tried to clean up the spill with water, leading to fears the fuel may have gotten into the water supply.

Now state officials tell us, nearly 30 days later, there is some lingering contamination.

It's unclear exactly how much.

Investigators have 60 more days to file a complete report.
