Dispatches From Exxon’s Spill Zone, Days 3 and 4

E-mail Print PDF

Exxon spillUPDATE: Correction: We originally reported that Exxon had allegedly pumped diluted bitumen which spilled into the Northwood Subdivision into a nearby wetland. We were mistaken; they power washed it into the nearby wetland via storm drains.

Mayflower, AR, April 5: We spent most of the day chasing down reports of oil sightings and talking to residents.

We also found what appears to be the Pegasus pipeline itself, with a newly added clamp of some sort, unearthed and sitting in a pool of water. There  are multiple pipelines in the area and we can’t absolutely verify that this is Pegasus, but we compared it to photos of other oil pipelines built in the 1940s and they are similar. Do you think that this pipe should be carrying heated, pressurized, corrosive tar sands bitumen?

On Saturday, April6, we finally found where Exxon’s been hiding their spilled diluted bitumen and we conducted more interviews. Watch this one with Sherry Appleman, who has lived on the shores of Lake Conway for 12 years. Her husband’s lung cancer has been worsened by the spill.
