 March 25, 2015, January 13, 2016, and January 27, 2016 incidents under investigation, due to potential impact to groundwater.  No indications it is associated with current or historic refining operations.  http://edms.deq.louisiana.gov/app/doc/view.aspx?doc=10088035&ob=yes&child=yes

Earlier observations were believed to be residual surface runoff from an October 2013 crude oil release.   It was only on January 27 2016 when seepage was described by AT&T personnel inside the box, that Valero determined that this may, instead, be the result of historic groundwater contamination.
