“Xcel and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency both said the 400,000-gallon spill posed no threat to drinking water or the nearby Mississippi River.”
“Both Xcel and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency said there was no risk to drinking water from the spill, which was traced to a pipe connecting two buildings across just a half-inch space. The spill was first reported to state and federal regulators on Nov. 22, 2022, and the source was found on Dec. 19, and patched soon after, according to MPCA.”
“Koudelka said the MPCA was announcing the leak almost three months after it was patched because “we have now sufficient information to be able to share it out to a wider group.”
Damn, that makes me feel good!
