Oil spill cleanup will require more time
Representatives from the North Dakota Health Dept. are expecting cleanup efforts on a September pipeline leak to take two years. The leak took place near Tioga, ND and spilled over 20,000 barrels of oil. It was one of the largest spills in state history but has been contained. Tesoro Corp, the pipeline’s owner, has submitted plans on how cleanup will be handled. To date, over 6,000 barrels of oil have been recovered. Read more about spill cleanup from the Bismarck Tribune.
