Massive cleanup effort underway after oil leak in Red Butte Canyon


www.ksl.com

SALT LAKE CITY -- A massive effort is underway to clean up the damage left behind when a Chevron pipeline leaked close to 500 barrels of oil into Salt Lake City waterways Saturday.

Leak detected

Crews have capped the site of a leak, which was spilling oil into Red Butte Creek. Chevron officials have confirmed the pipeline has been shut off, but warn residual oil may be leaking at the fracture point.

Though the site of the leak has been contained, officials estimate between 400 and 500 barrels of oil have already been released.

Yet another oil related disaster. When will it end? How could all of these oil disasters possibly be happening together unless it is someone behind it?

There are two rigs spilling oil in the Gulf of Mexico. Then there have been other incidents as well, all happening within just a couple of months. I have lost count of them all.

It might be because the public's paying more attention to it because of the disaster in the gulf. I'm not sure if it's considered "normal" to have spills like this 3 - 4 times a year but it could be.

It's strange that now this seems teeny tiny, isn't it?

Wow I am beginning to believe some of these claims that depopulation is going on right now.

WTF! The oceans are being destroyed, now they're going after the lakes??
There's got to be a bigger agenda we're missing here.

Edit to add:



The Salt Lake Valley Health Department says the oil has reached the Jordan River down to 1300 South and appears to be continuing into the Great Salt Lake.

It's not that there are more oil spills, it's just that oil spills are hot topics and minor to moderate ones are being brought to light. How many of you know of the oil spill which occurred in Nigeria? Not too many I'm assuming. The fact boils down to these ****heads and our government (as well as others) are entwined to salute oil and only oil. There will be no thought made to a change in alternative energy infrastructure as long as these corrupt individuals hold power.

I think in light of the ongoing crisis in the Gulf, any type of accident is sure to make the news.

I'm new to the subject, but it seems like accidents involving pipelines, water vessels, or the facilities involved happen everyday.

Here's some information regarding oil accidents. Theres information on water spills and land spills.

500 Bbls is not "massive", especially where this leak is. Pipelines fail. Most oil lines were layed a long time ago. There have been worse in recent times and none of them made the news...
