Officials: Pigeon Creek oil spill is harmless

Posted: Updated:

Crews are working to clean up an oil spill that happened last week in Evansville.

Indiana Department of Environmental Management officials say about 500-gallons of oil was spilled at Uniseal.

While most of the spill was contained to the Maryland Street location, some oil did spill into Pigeon Creek.

IDEM is overseeing the work as a local crew is working to clean it up.

IDEM officials say there is no danger to the public as no drinking water comes from Pigeon Creek.

There is currently no timeline for cleanup.
