Estimated 230000 gallons of oil spilled

Posted June 26, 2018

City public information officer Travis Olson says the wells were shut down as soon as Rock Valley officials were told of the derailment and oil spill north of them early Friday morning.

Beaudo also did not know whether the derailed oil cars were the safer, newer tankers meant to help prevent leaks in the event of an accident. The river rose rapidly Wednesday after 5 to 7 inches (13 to 18 centimetres) of rain fell Wednesday and a further downpour on Thursday.

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds is set to visit the site of an oil train derailment and oil spill in the northwestern corner of the state.

No one was hurt in the derailment, in which 32 cars came off the rails, 14 of which leaked at least some of their contents, BNSF said. Vander Stoep says efforts are underway to try to contain the leaking oil.

Heung-Min Son scored in the stoppage time to half the deficit but in the end it was no more than a consolation. The record for penalties at the World Cup stands at 18 in 2002.

BNSF, a unit of Berkshire Hathaway Inc, said it was using skimmers and vacuum trucks to clean up the spill and minimize damage to the environment.

BNSF spokesman Andy Williams confirmed the details Saturday.

Sheriff Vander Stoep said, "There is so much food for the workers and for us at the incident command, it's just awesome how little these communities come together". The train was carrying oilsands from Alberta, Canada, to Stroud, Oklahoma, for ConocoPhillips.

Olson says the city, with a population of almost 3,400, will use the rural water supply until testing by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources confirms the safety of the city's drinking water. ConocoPhillips spokesman Daren Beaudo said each tanker can hold more than 25,000 gallons (20,817 imperial gallons) of oil. The spill has raised concerns about drinking water downstream. The Rock River joins the Big Sioux River before merging into the Missouri River at Sioux City.

She said the "vast majority" of children being held in the detention facilities were sent to the USA alone by their parents. Nielsen echoed these points during her prepared remarks. "It's a simple choice", she said.

It's also unclear how many cars derailed and what caused the derailment.

The city, with a population of almost 3,400, will stay on the rural water system until testing by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources confirms the safety of the city's drinking water, Olson said.
