    Oil Leak

    So, this may not be a huge deal, but as of 2pm this afternoon, Crude Oil is leaking into the James river and making its way into the Chesapeake.

    btw

    all chemical, petroleum, and spills affecting bodies of water are to be reported to the nrc

    this helps federal, state and local authorities track and monitor cleanup

    The petroleum industry, along with the nuclear energy providers, have achieved fail safe delivery methodology in case you haven't been skooled on the facts. All is well. Don't mind the oil slicks. That is from natural seepage. Go back to your regularly scheduled program.

    That along with all the runoff from the recent rains and floodings. Looking forward to paddling in the resulting chemical soup off VB.
