The Department of Environmental Quality’s Division of Water Quality says owner Hess Corp reported a leak of produced water on August 15th from a pipeline eight miles north of Ray. Hess updated the spill amount estimate yesterday. The new estimate far exceeds the originally reported 84 hundred gallons.
