Oil Line Rupture

oil-6A Kansas Highway Patrol trooper saw oil running down the ditch of the interstate highway just north of El Dorado.  Fire crews responded and found what appeared to be an underground oil line rupture.

Firefighters also found that the oil ran down the ditch and into a creek.

Oil line representatives were called and responded to the site with a backhoe.   The oil representatives also shut down lines feeding the one leaking.

While the oil personnel were digging up the line with the backhoe, firefighters placed booms at several locations in the creek.  Both the oil company and firefighters did a great job controlling the incident.
