Our ongoing efforts for incident response and oil recovery at our Keystone Pipeline System Milepost 14 Incident site in Washington County, Kansas continue:
- Rainfall in the area has not had a negative impact on containment on site. Our onsite team had proactively prepared for this event with a secondary dam and additional resources. Crews are working to mitigate challenging road conditions by bringing in more gravel, mats and limiting traffic as it allows.
- We continue to prioritize the safety of people and the environment. Late yesterday, we rescued a beaver impacted by the incident. Our third-party environmental experts are caring for the animal using specialized equipment and techniques.
- Vacuum trucks and our crews continue to operate around the clock. Multiple booms are set up downstream of the release point to contain the oil from moving downstream; oil has not breached the containment area.
- The investigation is ongoing, and we do not have any updates on a cause.
