16:10 EDTDUKDuke Energy continues to make progress cleaning up Ohio River oil spill
Duke Energy continues to make major progress cleaning up an overnight spill on August 18, of approximately 3,000 to 5,000 gallons of fuel oil into the Ohio River at W.C. Beckjord Station, 20 miles southeast of Cincinnati. The company is working closely with the U.S. EPA, U.S. Coast Guard, Ohio EPA, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection and local agencies in response to the spill. Cleanup operations continue around-the-clock. Significant amounts of oil are being reclaimed from strategically placed oil-containment booms, skimmers and vacuums used to collect the oil. The incident occurred shortly after 11 p.m. Monday during a fuel oil transfer at the plant on the banks of the Ohio River in New Richmond, Ohio. A unified command center began operations at the station site early on August 19 to coordinate all recovery operations and will continue until the oil cleanup is complete. The U.S. EPA indicates that recovery of oil will continue through today, possibly tomorrow. Greater Cincinnati Water Works and Northern Kentucky Water District have resumed normal operations as water intakes are now open. At no point was drinking water affected. Water samples and air monitoring continue along the affected areas.
