Small Spill in Muscatine
Posted: 01/04/2011

MUSCATINE - About 100 gallons of corn oil was released at the Grain Processing Corporation in Muscatine Tuesday afternoon.

The company discovered the spill at 1:30 p.m. while loading a corn oil tank. Overflow from the tank ran into an unplugged floor drain and ran to the Mississippi River.

The DNR asked the company to clean up the yellow foam near the outfall to the river.
