Train spilled less oil than thought, says MPCA
A train that derailed north of Parkers Prairie last Wednesday didn't spill as much oil as initially estimated, according to officials with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) and Canadian Pacific.
The revised estimate is that less than 15,000 gallons spilled on to the ground, based on the amount of oil remaining in the three tanker cars that were leaking. That's about half as much oil as first reported.
