Oil Removal Continues

Clean-up of Friday’s train derailment in Mosier continues.  The Mosier Incident Command Center reported today that a significant amount of oil from derailed cars was removed overnight and crews could have all of the oil transloaded off-site by day’s end.  Crews had transloaded more than 65 truckloads of recovered oil by this morning.  It’s estimated that about 25 more truck loads remain.  The oil is being transferred to tanker trucks and transported to The Dalles, where it is being staged until resuming its trip to Tacoma.  Once all of the oil is transloaded, crews will begin removing the damaged rail cars.  Interstate 84 Exit 69 at Mosier has been reopened.
