Oil spill in South Trinidad
By FELICIA RAMPERSAD Thursday, February 21 2008
THE overpowering and nauseating smell of crude oil pervaded the air yesterday at Ramroopsingh Trace, Woodland in South Trinidad following an oil leak in the area on Tuesday. Residents awoke with upset stomachs after one of Petrotrin’s 16-inch oil-transfer lines ruptured. The company said three barrels of oil spilled onto residents backyards and into drains.
There were no reports of vegetation or livestock contamination as a result of the spillage, but in the backyards of many homes pools of crude oil were seen and lawns and gardens were slicked with oil.
