WILLARD BAY — Cleanup operations continue at the Willard Bay fuel spill, but the pipeline that caused the leak is back in service.
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency spokesman Matthew Allen said the Chevron-owned pipeline has been back in use since last weekend. According to the latest projections from Chevron, 14,994 gallons of fuel have been recovered from the site. The EPA last month estimated that 25,200 to 27,300 total gallons spilled.
In the wake of the spill, the U.S. Department of Transportation Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration issued a Corrective Action Order against Chevron, forcing the company to comply with a set of regulations before the pipeline could be re-opened.
