Nice that residents were informed. From The Herald News:

A pipeline leak in Manhattan Township on Friday involved the same company that was previously sued by state and county officials for a pipeline leak in Lockport.

Breiningsville, Penn.-based Buckeye Partners L.P. owns the pipeline that developed a leak near Hoff and Walsh roads at about 4 p.m. Friday.

The pipeline leaked an estimated 100 gallons of gasoline from a vent near the intersection. Pipeline repairs should be completed in a day or two, said company spokesman Martin White.

The cause of the leak was unknown as of Tuesday. The broken section was removed and it will be analyzed in the next week or so, White said. The pipeline, which carries petroleum products from Hartsdale, Ind., to Galesburg, has been shut down as a result of the leak.

Prior to the leak, the line had been flowing at a reduced capacity for precautionary reasons after a train derailed near the pipeline in Toluca, White said.

Buckeye was sued in December 2010 by state and county officials because of alleged environmental violations following a Dec. 14, 2010, pipeline leak in Lockport.

Crude oil was found leaking from the pipeline near 13803 S. New Ave. after resident complaints about petroleum odors in the area. Oil seeped from the pipeline into wetlands that flow into the Illinois and Michigan Canal, which ultimately flows into the Des Plaines River.

The lawsuit was filed by Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan and Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow against Buckeye, which operated the pipeline, and West Shore Pipe Line, which owned the pipeline.

The legal action required the companies to inspect water lines and storm sewers for contamination and pay the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and Will County for all costs associated with the leak.

Charles Pelkie, a spokesman for Glasgow’s office, said the lawsuit is ongoing.

“It is not resolved, but we are working toward a resolution to it,” he said.

Buckeye’s White said he did not have any details on the Lockport leak or the lawsuit. But in general, he said the company always “cooperates to the fullest extent” in such situations.

Glasgow met with local, state and federal officials late last year to discuss pipeline concerns, Pelkie said. It is critical for county officials to know where all the pipelines are, what condition they are in and what kind of damage a leak would do to surrounding areas, Pelkie said.

Both state and federal Environmental Protection Agencies also were notified about the latest leak, and Buckeye will have to clean up the spilled fuel, said Harold Damron, director of the Will County Emergency Management Agency.

Will County has more pipelines running beneath it than any other county in the state, Damron said. And with pipelines comes pipeline leaks. The county experiences about five or so leaks a year, he said.

The biggest recent leak in Will County occurred in September 2010 when an Enbridge Energy Partners pipeline leaked for three days, spewing thousands of barrels worth of crude oil into sewage and drainage systems in the 700 block of Parkwood Avenue in Romeoville.

And Borgo wants to lay plans for Manhattan's future pushing south. That's real bright. A community is built from the "bottom" up. So for all practical matters pipelines influence the future quality of living. Who needs or wants disruptions from time to time over gas stink, leaks, pollution and other nuisances? And why did you vote for this guy? Would it be that his bud in kind Walsh has business interests more to the south than to the north. The parade is on-going I see and perhaps this is why the news was kept in the closet for as long as possible.

Check out the water line and fire hydrant improvements between Smith and Manhattan - Monee. That's Walsh family property according the the Farm Bureau plats. Did the Village spend taxpayers money to benefit Walsh? Oh, just another closely held secret around here.

So it's an improvement? At what expensae - the Eastern road conditions! And if the farmland improvements are set on eventually get subdivided, then I would agree that the Village subsidized the improvements with taxpayers money. Hey, the improvements lead nowhere at this time, and I mean nowhere. So Walsh equals Walsh and Borgo is catreing to the clan. No doubt.
