NOS Standing By to Assist with Yellowstone River Oil Spill [What’s New]

This item was filled under News
On July 1, a 12-inch crude oil pipeline breached in the vicinity of or under the Yellowstone River near Laurel, MT. The breach released an estimated 750 to 1,000 barrels (31,500 to 42,000 gallons) of crude oil into the river. Flood conditions in the area have created high-water levels and currents have been reported as high as seven to 10 knots, which have hindered some response activities.
