Arkansas leaders want response from ExxonMobil

Posted: Updated:

Officials in Arkansas have sent a letter to ExxonMobil calling for information about the oil company's pipeline that runs beneath the Lake Maumelle watershed.

The letter signed by Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola, North Little Rock Mayor Joe Smith, Pulaski County Judge Buddy Villines, Central Arkansas Water Board chai Marie-Bernarde Miller, US Rep. Tim Griffin and US Sens. Mark Pryor and John Boozman refers to a similar May 15 request that they say hasn't been answered. It comes following a March 29 oil spill of about 150,000 gallons from the Pegasus pipeline in Mayflower.

The letter says officials "are extremely disappointed" that previous requests for inspection results of the pipeline have not been answered.

The pipeline runs under the watershed that's the drinking water supply for an estimated 400,000 people.
