Pipeline firm cited for 2M-gallon spill in Ohio

CLEVELAND — A Texas company building a high-pressure pipeline to carry natural gas from Appalachia has been issued violation notices for spilling a total of about 2 million gallons of drilling fluid into two separate wetlands last week, the Ohio EPA said. About 2 million gallons of the non-toxic, clay-based lubricant spilled April 13 as Rover Pipeline employees drilled beneath the Tuscarawas River near Navarre in Stark County.
