FORT WORTH, Texas — Thirteen Parker County families have filed a lawsuit against Chevron Pipe Line Co., alleging it dumped toxic and carcinogenic chemicals at its pipeline booster/pump station east of Brock.
The families allege chemicals have migrated into the soil and groundwater sources of nearby farms and ranches, Fort Worth law firm Puls, Taylor & Woodson LLP said Monday.
The lawsuit was filed Feb. 22 in state court in Weatherford.
Leaks from boosters, sumps, pumps, swab traps and oil water separators on or under the station are cited as sources of the pollution
A spokesman for ChevronTexaco in Houston, Mickey Driver, said the company hadn’t yet seen the lawsuit and could not comment.
Chevron Pipe Line Co. is a subsidiary of San Francisco-based ChevronTexaco Corp.
Brock is about 30 miles west of Fort Worth.
