An oil spill on Tuesday at Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge has affected Lake Texoma, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced Thursday.
In a release issued Thursday evening, Environmental Specialist James Vincent said that there was a minor release of oil and produced water at Hagerman.
"Approximately 10 gallons of oil and 420 gallons of produced water were released from a ruptured pipeline onto land and into Lake Texoma," the release said. "The spill was stopped and contained soon after detection. No aquatic impacts have been observed."
The release also said that the responsible party for the spill is conducting cleanup in coordination with federal and state regulatory authorities.
