WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (AP) -- Crews are close to completing cleanup after an oil pipeline spill in Adams County last month.
More than 50,000 gallons of oil was spilled in Grand Marsh, and more than 17,000 tons of contaminated soil has been removed. The Enbridge Energy Partners pipeline has since reopened.
Leaders at Veolia Environmental Services tell WAOW-TV the soil is being hauled to their location in Wisconsin Rapids. There, it will be treated and eventually end up in their landfill.
An Enbridge spokeswoman says the company hopes the majority of the cleanup will be done by Saturday.
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources hydrogeologist Tom Hvizdak says the cleanup is going "as well as can be expected:"
The DNR says about 45,000 tons of soil will be removed once cleanup is complete.
