WINONA, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is investigating after a Canadian Pacific Railway train dribbled about 12,000 gallons of crude oil between Winona and Red Wing in southeastern Minnesota.
MPCA spokeswoman Cathy Rofshus says no major cleanup is planned because the oil splattered between the tracks as the train was moving Monday. She says responders have not found any pools of oil that could be cleaned up.
Crews discovered the leak before 9 a.m. near Winona. It involved less than half the contents of a typical tanker car, which holds about 26,000 gallons.
The leak was traced to a valve or cap problem. Canadian Pacific spokesman Ed Greenberg tells the Winona Daily News the railroad is investigating the cause and will cooperate fully with any cleanup efforts if they're required.
