210,000 gallons of oil from the Keystone Pipeline leaked

(Last Updated On: November 22, 2017)

Brian Walsh, a spokesman for the state’s Department of Environment and Natural Resources, said it was largest Keystone oil spill ever in the South Dakota area.

A loss of 210,000 gallons of oil from the Keystone Pipeline was leaked the morning of Thursday, November 16, 2017, and crews spent the morning shutting the pipeline own as officials investigated the leak.

The leaked happened just a few days before a decision was to be made about a proposal Keystone XL Pipeline can move forward or not; the leak occurred three miles south of the town of Amherst.

In April of 2016 TransCanada was responsible for another spill of 16,800 gallons.
