Lubbock Fire Rescue hazmat team called to North Lubbock

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock Fire Rescue hazmat team was called to the area east of I-27 and E. Loyola Street around 8 a.m. Friday morning.

Officials say an estimated 17,000 gallons of waste salt water with traces of crude oil from a pressure line that was feeding a salt water disposal well spilled into the area.

The saltwater is a byproduct of the crude oil production.

Officials say representatives from TCEQ, the Texas Railroad Commission, the City of Lubbock, and the City of Lubbock are working with company officials on a cleanup plan.
