Environmentalists Frustrated by Lack of Information From Regulators on Exxon Pipeline Spill

From InsideClimate News:
Federal regulators have released ExxonMobil's 2013 emergency response plan for the pipeline that ruptured in an Arkansas residential neighborhood on March 29, but the document is so heavily redacted that it offers little information about Exxon's preparations for such an accident. 
The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA)completely blotted out more than 100 pages of the 290-page document, including Exxon’s worst-case scenario hypothesis and its plans to repair any damage caused by an accident. What remains is emergency contact information for local authorities and Exxon officials and maps of the 850-mile route of the Pegasus pipeline, which also include a few redactions. 
PHMSA even redacted part of the ExxonMobil watermark that appears on more than 150 pages of the document.
