EPA says Houston-area oil spill cleaned up: AP
A spokeswoman for the Environmental Protection Agency says a 2,500-gallon oil spill linked to Harvey's strike on the Houston area has been cleaned up, The Associated Press reported Wednesday.
EPA spokeswoman Liz Bowman said the agency had closely coordinated with the U.S. Coast Guard, which reported the cleanup was completed Tuesday.
An EPA news release sent Wednesday night did not include details about the spill, including whether it endangered drinking water or forced evacuations.
