Koch Pipeline Oil Spill Reported Near Austin, Texas

Reports are indicating crews have contained a giant oil spill originating from a Koch Pipeline about 40 miles from Austin, Texas, but not before it spilled 17,000 gallons of oil.

According to a report from KVUE, the oil came from an eight-inch diameter pipeline after it sprung a leak. Crews from SWS Environmental said the spill polluted a private stock pond and two overflow reservoirs, and have yet to determine where the pipe broke.

The line itself serves refineries in Corpus Christie and transports crude oil, according to the report, which you can watch here:
