Wyoming oil spill puts public in the middle
Wyoming is no stranger to oil spills and spills of varying types. Many have been classified as accidents, while others have been classified as emergencies.
The latest incident — an oil spill of a magnitude 5.4 in central Wyoming, near the town of Vanda — is the second time in less than two years the company has spilled oil to the public, according to the Associated Press.
“This is not an emergency,” the company says in a press release. “This will be our last time being at the scene.”
But on Monday, state and federal regulators acknowledged that a spill of 10,000 barrels spilled 2,000 barrels of oil in a field west of the town.

The agency’s release said it was prepared to deploy divers to the area, with any spill potential “determined after determining the depth of the spill, determining the extent of the damage and determining the extent of the public health threats.”
