Oil Spill At Ohio Nature Preserve

Ohio EPA officials say oil from a leaky pipeline traveled a mile down a stream into an acre of wetlands at the Glen Oak Nature Preserve in Colerain Township last night. Authorities say the pipeline has been shut off and the leak has been contained. No humans or animals have been injured. Sunoco Logistics operates the 1 thousand mile pipeline. The company estimates 240 barrels of oil were released.
