On Oct 24, 2007, an operator found that the wastewater pond had oily material floating on the surface. The source was a partially opened bypass valve. Refinery personnel used absorbent boom to contain the oil. They also had mobilized oil spill responsepersonnel to assist in recovering and containing the oil. The oil was contained in the ponds and was not discharged off-site and/or through any outfall. The cause of the open valve is under investigaiton.
