Chevron says an oil leak that sent an estimated 33,000 gallons of oil into the Red Butte Creek and the Jordan River came from a quarter-sized hole in the pipeline. At a news conference Monday, the manager of Chevron's Salt Lake City refinery, Mark Sullivan, said the company believes the rupture in the 10-inch pipeline was caused by a high voltage electrical arc from a metal post.
