Is contaminated water from Palestine derailment fire coming through Oklahoma?


Leaders of a small town near Houston learned this week that the water used to battle the blaze at the Ohio train derailment is being sent to a company in their town. Whether it’s coming through Oklahoma is unclear yet.

They only learned of the matter through the press and were not notified by officials. It’s not clear the rail route taken by the trains hauling the contaminated water to Deer Park, a suburb on the east side of Houston.

There remains a possibility it is being hauled through eastern Oklahoma but that is not confirmed.

Insider reported nearly 2 million gallons of the water is being transported from Ohio to Texas Molecular, a waste treatment company in charge of the disposal.
