DEP Update on Sunoco Pipeline spill in Lycoming County

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has announced the following update on the gasoline spill into the Loyalsock Creek in Lycoming County.

The Sunoco pipeline has been capped at the south end, and work will continue overnight and into tomorrow morning to cap the north end. The level of the Loyalsock Creek has dropped from 13 feet yesterday to approximately 4 feet today, allowing increased access for crews.

DEP conducted water sampling for volatile organic compounds in waters that could have been affected by the spill. Six sampling locations were identified, both upstream of the spill for control and comparison and downstream of the break. Gasoline compounds were detected in the samples downstream of the break, but were below safe drinking water levels in the Susquehanna River.

DEP has notified water systems downstream of the break; at this time there are no concerns for public drinking water supplies, as water systems will use stored water and alternative sources until the plume has passed.

Residents who have been impacted by the release can call a Sunoco Logistics representative at 1-800-759-5644.

Sounds like Sunoco was late on a payment...

DEP is a joke just anything to make pipelines look worse than trucking in oil. I bet truck's dump more oil in one day due to accidents than what pipeline does in one year. Not to mention the DEP and it's politicians love sucking money out of everyone anyway they possibly can...

Like that commercial for the Brita filter. Here's a glass of water with gasoline compounds below safe drinking water levels. 1:43:00 YOU drink it!
