Dominion Energy fired an oilfield worker in Rock Springs after the employee saved an estimated 50 waterfowl from wastewater ponds. Adam Roich said he’s rescued about that many waterfowl in the last 5 years after they landed in tainted ponds at his worksite about 50 miles south of Rock Springs. He would take the oil-slicked birds to a company facility, wash them with Dawn household soap, warm them in his truck, then set them free on clean water, he told WyoFile in an interview. ‘I got fired a couple days before Christmas for rescuing these guys throughout the years,’ he posted recently on Facebook above many photographs of his avian patients. ‘I only did what I thought was right.’

Dominion terminated Roich on Dec. 19 for "violating company policy."
