Toledoan Bryan Scallish looks down from a pedestrian bridge in Highland Park at a containment boom set in Swan Creek. About 75 gallons of diesel fuel spilled into a ditch at the University of Toledo Health Science Campus yesterday morning when a fuel-tank shut-off valve malfunctioned, Casey Stephens, Toledo's commissioner of engineering services, said. The boom in Swan Creek proved unnecessary; the spill was contained in the ditch near Arlington Avenue and was to be cleaned up by a UT contractor, Mr. Stephens said.
