Ooops! They Did It Again! Greka Oil Spills 600 Gallons

I'm kind of tired of doing these posts about new oil spills at Greka -- when will they be shut down for good? They don't deserve to be in business....this from KEYT News video:
A HAZMAT crew is trying to clean up a 600 gallon oil spill at the Greka oil facility near Los Alamos. The spill happened around 3:20 p.m. Friday on Palmer Road, just east of Highway 101.

Initial reports indicated only 10 to 15 barrels of crude oil spilled, but now, county fire officials say up to 2,000 gallons of toxic produced water and 600 gallons of crude leaked from an eight-inch underground production line.

The CHP has shut down Palmer Road to all traffic at the 101 on the west end, and Dominion Road on the east end.

Quick, quick, another photo op for Pedro Nava to look concerned.
