Alderman Russell W. Stamper, II is alerting the public about the shutdown of a local gas station in his district at 23rd and Fond Du Lac Ave. that was selling gas mixed with water.

Yesterday, state officials received a consumer complaint in the morning and sent a state inspector to the gas station in question around noon. After conducting tests it was concluded that the tanks on the premises had water in them and the gas station was told it could no longer sell gasoline to the public.

While it’s early in the investigation, it appears the water in the gas is due to the heavy rain from the prior day and that some of the seals on the filling portion of the tank were faulty.

Ald. Stamper says, “I’d like to let residents know they can call the state if they were negatively impacted by the gas station. I’m glad this problem is on its way to being resolved.”

The gas station owner will not be able to sell gas until the issues with the faulty tanks are resolved and tested by the state.

If a consumer feels they have been victimized they can call consumer protection at 608-224-4942 .
