Drilling planned for diesel cleanup
MANDAN (AP) -- Mandan officials say crews will drill at an angle to avoid tearing up Main Street while cleaning up a diesel spill.
The spill under the city was discovered in 1984, and some estimate it may have totaled as much as 4 million gallons.
A spokesman for the company cleaning up the diesel, Ken Kytta, says nearly 1.5 million pounds of contaminated material has been removed so far, including methane.
