Work Continues Removing Rail Cars From River

(Reed Point, MT) — More progress is being made to clean up the Yellowstone River following last month’s bridge collapse and train derailment. The Environmental Protection Agency said yesterday the last rail car in the river containing sulphur was being removed. But, there are three more rail cars on the eastern side of the bridge that need to be taken out, as well. Those rail cars were carrying asphalt. Officials noted a milestone was reached yesterday by being able to reopen agricultural ditches that help nearby ranches. An oiled bird was reported and Unified Command said a care team found the animal dead.
