Case Description

The Countrymark Cooperative, LLP petroleum refinery is located in Mt. Vernon, Indiana, where it has been continuously operated for more than 50 years. Countrymark owns 238 miles of pipeline through which it transports oil across the country from wells located in Illinois; Indiana, and Kentucky. The oil spill occurred in early May 2003 in a part of the Wabash River floodplain known as Goose Pond. Goose Pond is located near Griffin, Indiana, in a rural agricultural area, approximately two miles from the nearest residence. The FWS estimated that approximately 300 acres of land, in addition to adjacent wetlands and floodplains, were impacted by the Oil Spill.
