Mineral Oil Leak in Lansdale
Firefighters and a hazardous materials team were called out in Lansdale Friday afternoon to contain a mineral oil leak at a borough business. It happened at Rex Heat Treat on West 8th Street. The mineral oil got into a nearby tributary of the western branch of the Neshaminy Creek but it was contained before any significant environmental damage was done. Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the leak but they do believe it originated on the roof of the building that houses the business.
