Oil Tank Spill Contaminates Wyoming Neighborhood

March 11, 2009 - An above-ground tank outside a home in the Oakwood Village mobile home park tipped over during the night, dumping more than 100 gallons. The oil washed down the street, flowed under some homes and made its way into a nearby pond.

The state Department of Environmental Protection and EMA plan to do air quality testing periodically over the next few days to ensure there is no health hazard. The state Fish and Boat Commission was also called in to monitor the spill and potential affects on wildlife.
