The Wall Street Heliport New Fuel Farm

The Wall Street or Downtown Manhattan Heliport (JRB) is located on Pier 6 on the East River which separates Manhattan and Queens in New York City. First opened in 1960 and operated by the Port Authority of NY & NJ, it was given back to the New York City...

In the unlikely event of a spill at the truck unloading area on the north side of the AST, a fuel spill barrier has been installed with integral fuel-absorbing filters located adjacent to the scupper drain locations to keep spilled fuel from draining into the East River.

A similar fuel-absorbing filter is installed in the deck storm drains adjacent to the helicopter fueling positions. In addition, a Spill Prevention, Containment, and Countermeasure Plan (SPCC Plan) was prepared. This plan requires that a spill kit, including booms, be kept onsite and that a marine spill recovery firm be retained.
