Oil leak beneath New Mexico air base estimated at 8 million gallons (Podcast)
(KSFR) -
-- While all eyes are on the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico, a smaller but still significant leak continues in New Mexico.

It's beneath Kirtland Air Force Base, Albuquerque. The state environment department estimates its size at eight millions gallons. That's only slightly smaller than the Exxon Valdez spill.

Albuquerque Journal science reporter John Fleck has been following the story and joins us to talk about it on KSFR's At Noon news.
