Houston Company Admits To Okla. Water Violation

MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) - A Houston company has agreed to a fine and to pay for remediation and ecological studies after admitting to negligently violating the Clean Water Act while working on a natural gas well in Oklahoma.

Tuesday's agreement calls for Integrated Production Services LLC to pay a $140,000 fine and $22,000 for ecological studies and remediation of Boggy Creek in Atoka County.

The agreement must be approved by a federal judge in Muskogee.

The Oklahoman reports that the violation occurred in 2007 when a company supervisor drove a pickup truck into a berm at the well site after a tank had leaked hydrochloric acid. The acid then spilled into Dry Creek - which is a tributary of Boggy Creek.
