Cleanup Continues On The Yellowstone River Oil Spill
Cleanup crews are finding more oil-fouled parts along the Yellowstone River near Billings, as flood waters recede after an ExxonMobile pipeline failure. Yellowstone County Commissioner Bill Kennedy says last weekend was the first time they were able to get boats on the river and help is appreciated.
A total of 45 locations with oil have been found along the scenic waterway, an increase of 15 sites since Saturday. Kennedy says the number is likely to increase as crews in boats and on foot reach areas that were inaccessible because of the flooding river.
