JEFFERSON CITY — The Department of Natural Resources is leading the cleanup of 800 gallons of fuel on a farm in north-central Missouri.
The agency was alerted Wednesday to the leak from an above-ground storage tank in Randolph County. The company that owns the tank, Brownfield Oil, spread absorbent material and built a berm to contain the fuel.
Officials said there's no threat to any known waterways. The contaminated soil will have to be removed and replaced.
DNR said its 24-hour spill line receives more than 1,600 incident reports each year.
