Oil spill cleanup continues in southwestern Illinois

HIGHLAND, Ill. (AP) – The cleanup continues in southwestern Illinois after a weekend oil spill dumped more than 4,000 gallons of crude into a creek.

Houston-based Plains All-American Pipeline says it has deployed 2,700 booms in response to a Friday pipeline break at a pump station about 40 miles east of St. Louis near Highland.

The company said it contained “a portion” of the 4,200-gallon spill on site before it reached Little Silver Creek, which feeds into Silver Lake. The lake is a municipal drinking water source for Highland and the nearby town of Grantfork.
