AMHERST, S.D. (AP) — TransCanada Corp. says the company has sent additional crews and equipment to the site of a 210,000-gallon oil spill in South Dakota from its Keystone pipeline.
TransCanada said Saturday it is making progress in its investigation into the cause of the spill on farmland in Marshall County, near the North Dakota border, about 250 miles west of Minneapolis. But the company did not elaborate. The company says additional equipment and workers continue to be dispatched to the site.
About 150 people are now at the site, company spokesman Terry Cunha said Sunday. A gravel road has been completed to handle heavy equipment, Cunha said.
Crews shut down the pipeline Thursday after discovering the leak.
TransCanada says the leak is under control and there is no significant environmental impact or threat to the public.
