    It is the drinking water source for that community. You can see the oil seeping into the wetlands that surround the lake from the helicopter video shot by Adam Randall.

    Exxon has put up surface booms, but that is just PR.

    Dilbit, as we saw in the Kalamazoo spill, sinks to the bottom and requires dredging to clean up. And they still haven't done it correctly.

    This community is toast. Exxon will need to buy these families out, and the South will have it's own Love Canal.

    So sad.
