Restoration Efforts At Oak Glen After Oil Spill

May 30, 2017

In March, 2014, Hamilton County Park rangers at the Oak Glen Nature Preserve discovered an underground pipeline running through the preserve had ruptured, releasing approximately 20,000 gallons of crude oil. Cleanup began almost immediately and most of the oil was recovered, but the preserve's habitat was severely damaged and restoration efforts are still underway.

Joining us to discuss the damage caused by the oil leak and what is being done to help restore Oak Glen Nature Preserve are Great Parks of Hamilton County Executive Director Jack Sutton and Natural Resources Director Bret Henninger.
