Arkansas Oil Spill?

I just heard about this from some family in Arkansas. I haven't heard/read anything about it in the news.

same shit with Exxon. I remember this happening in Billings, MT with a nasty oil spill in the Yellowstone river. Small, but could've been avoided.

Exxon continues to astound.

Quote:
Roughly two weeks after Exxon's Pegasus pipeline ruptured in Mayflower, Ark., spilling an estimated 84,000 gallons of crude into residential streets, the oil company has announced that the animals most impacted by the disaster are venomous snakes.

"Approximately 182 live animals have been captured to date," Exxon said in a written update from its Mayflower information center. "Fourteen animals of various species have been released and approximately 27 are still being cleaned. The majority of the impacted wildlife has been reptiles, primarily venomous snakes."

According to its Facebook page, the Helping Arkansas Wild Kritters (HAWK) Center, which has worked to help scores of animals hurt by the March 29 spill, has not rescued any venomous snakes, but has cared for many birds.
"Don't ya fellas worry none 'bout tha' wildlife. We did ya all a favor by killin' all these snakes. No nice critters were harmed!"

If oil used to bubble right up through the ground in some areas, then biodegraded since, what's the big deal, outside of property damage?

You're a little uninformed on this case, evidently.

MAYFLOWER, AR -- Exxon Mobil documents released by the federal agency investigating the spill of an estimated 5,000 barrels of oil into a residential neighborhood spell out a litany of dangerous compounds associated that particular type of crude.

Under a section titled "Potential Health Affects" Exxon Mobil says its so-called Wabasca heavy crude "may cause cancer."

"If anything happens in the next 10, 20, 50 years of my children's lives, you think, 'I wonder if that was caused by any kind of long-term affects from the spill,'" said Chris Harrell, a resident of the Northwoods subdivision where the spill happened.

Another section of the documents warns that the crude is "toxic to aquatic life" and "may cause long term adverse affects in the aquatic environment."

"That's a big deal economically for the area, because sport fishing is major here," said Harrell.

Exxon Mobil declined our request for an on-camera interview Friday. Over the phone spokesman Alan Jeffers pointed to air and sampling being conducted by the Exxon Mobil and government agencies.

"The levels are below established health action levels," said Nicolas Brescia with the US E.P.A.

Both the US E.P.A. and Arkansas Department of Health say that means the people of Mayflower are not at risk for the type of health and environmental affects laid out in Exxon Mobil's report.

"Yeah, that all sounds good," Harrell said. "I hope they're right, but you won't know."

Jeffers said Exxon Mobil is committed to continuing its work in Mayflower until the type of threats noted in the report are gone.

Spill timeline update

Exxon Mobil said Friday that while a pumping station and valves were shut down and closed off within 16 minutes of the first alert of a drop in pressure on March 29th, gravity caused oil to keep flowing for more than 12 hours.
If you're actually interested, here's some light reading for you:
http://media.arkansasonline.com/news...Heavy_MSDS.pdf

Quote:
May cause cancer. Danger of adverse health effects by prolonged exposure. Repeated exposure may cause
skin dryness or cracking. If swallowed, may be aspirated and cause lung damage. Under conditions of poor
personal hygiene and prolonged repeated contact, some polycyclic aromatic compounds (PACs) have been
suspected as a cause of skin cancer in humans. Hydrogen sulfide, a highly toxic gas, is expected to be
present. Signs and symptoms of overexposure to hydrogen sulfide include respiratory and eye irritation,
dizziness, nausea, coughing, a sensation of dryness and pain in the nose, and loss of consciousness. Odor
does not provide a reliable indicator of the presence of hazardous levels in the atmosphere. May be irritating to
the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs. Aliphatic hydrocarbon gases may build up in confined spaces and may
cause dizziness, light-headedness, headache, nausea and loss of coordination. Continued inhalation may
result in narcosis, unconsciousness, and possibly lead to death. May cause central nervous system
depression. High-pressure injection under skin may cause serious damage. Exposure to benzene is
associated with cancer (acute myeloid leukemia and myelodysplastic syndrome), damage to the bloodproducing
system, and serious blood disorders (see Section 11).

The state's solution to the Gulf oil spill was what? Adding toxic chemicals.

You could always kill those snakes with more toxic chemicals while you clean up the spill!

So they are using a pipeline built in the 1940s. Sounds safe to me
