ECHO BAY MARINA FUEL DOCK TEMPORARILY CLOSED
Contact: Andrew S. Munoz, (702) 293-8691
Contact: Echo Bay Marina, (702) 394-4066
OVERTON, Nev. - Echo Bay Marina has temporarily closed its fuel dock to repair a fuel line leak discovered on Monday. Repairs are expected to take a week, leaving boaters without water-based fueling facilities in the upper Overton Arm of Lake Mead. The National Park Service urges boaters to plan accordingly. The marina's land-based gas station is open.
The marina immediately isolated the leak and reported it to authorities. It's estimated that 600 gallons of gasoline was released from an underground fuel line. No fuel entered the water. The National Park Service and Nevada Department of Environmental Protection are monitoring the cleanup and repairs.
Visitors should contact the marina directly for repair updates at (702) 394-4066.
