Dominion To Conduct Dye Test Thursday Morning

Example of Dye TestAfter the oil spill earlier this year that released 13,500 gallons of mineral oil into the Potomac River, Dominion Virginia Power has announced that it will conduct a dye tracer test this morning.

The test is being conducted to determine how oil traveled from Dominion’s Crystal City substation to the Roaches Run Waterfowl Sanctuary.

The dye will be a bright peach color and it is non-toxic; it’s expected to last no longer than a week and, according to Dominion, currents and sunlight will likely cause the dye to dissipate within a day.
