Oil spill at an operating oil pump near the J.B. Thomas Reservoir in the Permian Basin in West Texas. Leaking pumps can be found at frack sites. The lawn around the pump should be cut down. The tall grass and weeds as well as the spilled oil present a fire hazard. In an area that has drought conditions, oil pumps not maintained well add to an already dangerous situation during the height of fire season in the summer. Permian Basin, Texas.
