Plains at Stevens Facility Oil Spill - Water and Wastewater - Oil Spills

A truck driver for the Plains at Stevens Facility overfilled his truck on the morning of 9/17/2014. Approximately 60 barrels of API gravity oil were discharged impacting surrounding soil and an adjoining wetland area. Approximately 25 barrels of that discharge migrated along a ditch and an unnamed tributary of the Bogue Homo water body for approximately 0.17 miles before being contained in the headwaters of the Bogue Homo.  Oil Shark® fence was installed to prevent storm events from distributing oil to unoiled surrounding areas.
