Oil Spill At Nature Preserve Larger Than First Estimated

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency now says more than 20 thousand gallons of crude oil leaked from a pipeline into the Glen Oak Nature Preserve near Colerain on March 18th. Meanwhile, pipeline owner Sunoco says the crack that spawned the leak been repaired and oil flow has resumed. The cause of the 5-inch crack remains under investigation. Officials say no problems have been found with air quality or local water wells, but some small wildlife has been affected.
