Vandals Dump Five Thousand Gallons Of Crude Oil On Ground In McKean County

Over 5,000 Gallons Of Crude Oil Spilled
State Police at Kane are investigating the dumping of 5,418 gallons of crude oil onto the ground off Forestry Route 261 in Hamilton Township, McKean County between April 14th and Wednesday.

Actors opened the valve on a tank and released 129 barrels of crude oil onto the ground. The facility belongs to Howard Drilling, Mount Jewett, PA. Value of the loss is about $9,600.00.

Anyone with information on this continuing investigation is asked to contact PSP Kane at 814-778-5555. Trooper Leslie Oates is the investigating officer.

Late this afternoon, the communications officer at the State Police in Kane was not able to provide any information on the environmental damage this spill has caused or if there is a clean-up in progress.

I don't know if this was revenge or just done for "kicks". But regardless it is an act against the environment. If this spill occurred from a company drilling for oil & gas there would be a great outcry for more regulations.

My question is...How in the hell does everyone get access to just open dump valves on oil tanks? Why don't the oil companies have the valves locked and put other safety measures in place? Like locking their gates and such.

Mr. Realistic
On the face I am sure that locking valves and other security measures seem to make sense.But if you understand the large number of valves and pipeing at each well,you would understand that locking and unlocking hundreds of locks each day is not an option.(I am sure we have all had the pleasure of trying to get into our cars when the lock has frozen)Many individuals as well as sub-contractors need to have access,as well as safety and emergency personel.
Once again bad behavior by those in our society with no morality is deemed to be the fault of those that have had to endure their acts.
