Clean up continues in southeastern Nebraska after a bulldozer operator struck a pair of pipelines near Nemaha.
The rupture spilled an estimated 252,000 gallons of gasoline and diesel, some of which leaked into a tributary of the Little Nemaha River. A spokesman for Magellan Midstream Partners of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Bruce Heine, says repairs have been made to the pipelines and the pipelines are operating as normal again. The pipelines transport gasoline, diesel and jet fuel from Texas to terminals in Omaha, Lincoln and Doniphan.
A crew of about 65 company employees and private contractors is on the scene for the clean-up. No one was injured. Nemaha, a city of 150, was not evacuated.
