Leaking Containment Tank Leads to Cleanup in Trumbull County

From the Tribune Chronicle:
Farmington Volunteer Fire Department crews were among firefighters responding about 5:20 p.m. Monday to the site of the well at 4669 Scenic Drive Northwest, according to 911 dispatch records. Crews had also been called to the site off Girdle Road around noon on Sunday. In both cases, neighbors reported odors coming from the well and said it was leaking fluids.
Crude oil was leaking from the containment tank, according to Trumbull HazMat Interim Chief Jason DeLuca. He said the tank was shut down and a vacuum truck was called in to suck up the oil that had gotten into a nearby stream. Crews also placed absorbent materials in the area to contain leakage into tributaries leading to the Grand River.
