Default Re: Spill Baby, Spill

Well, yes, but how likely is it that it will seep down? I admit I don't have any data, and a 2 minute google search didn't drudge up any satisfactory information, but going with gut feeling alone, I'd say the % of pipeline leaks that more then 100 gallons end up in a local aquifer is rather low. Isn't most pipeline petrol products rather viscous and sticky?

Okay fine, I don't know, my point is only that even if this huge aquifer isn't likely to be contaminated by this proposed pipeline, you wouldn't hear about it from the Sierra Club.
