8 Nov 2016 by Local Press Report

An oil spill in Venezuela’s Anzoategui State has affected drinking water across a 31-mile radius, PDVSA confirmed on Monday. Anzoategui State is known for its beautiful coastline that makes up a single 62-mile-long beach, as well as a robust fishing and tourism industry. The leak, although not disclosed until Monday, apparently happened on 1 November spewing 25,000 barrels of oil, according to lawmaker Jose Brito.
