Leaking like a sieve

The equipment's leaking at Equistar Chemicals at Chocolate Bayou, severely impacting the chocolatey goodness of the waterfront ambience.

Equistar told the state regulators that to "isolate" the leaks to "enable repair," beaucoup emissions took place.


We're talking 2,000 lbs. o' benzene, 2,300 lbs. o' 1,3 Butadiene, etc., etc.

[emissions report 71102]

I guess I need to start a website selling gas masks to ya'll.

BTW, where is the Chron's enviro reporter on this stuff?
