Oil Leak Leaves Thousands Without Drinking Water

Motor oil leak leaves thousands without drinking water in Brazil. About 300,000 residents of Cascavel in Brazil’s western Parana state were left without drinking water when engine oil from an overturned tank truck polluted a local river, Brazilian media said on Sunday. More than 5 metric tons of oil products leaked to the road and then to the river via drainage systems. The local environmental authority IAP estimated environmental damage as “significant.” ((20 FEB 2011))
