US EPA and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency are overseeing the cleanup of a January 31, 2013, discharge of oil, brine and waste water generated from oil and gas drilling operations by D&L Energy near Youngstown, Ohio. The brine and oil mixture is waste that is suspected to have been generated by D&L Energy operations and released on multiple occasions. It was released into a storm sewer that discharged into a small creek and then into the Mahoning River in the Belle Vista neighborhood of Youngstown.

As of Feb. 27, 2013:

After the spill was stabilized and confined to the small creek, EPA oversaw the continued removal of oil and oiled sediment from within the storm sewer, creek and Mahoning River.

D & L Energy is conducting containment and cleanup operations under the joint oversight of US EPA and Ohio EPA.
