A 2011 Oil Spill Is Soon To Be Taken Care Of

Posted: Updated:

 

Restoration plans are now underway for the Exxon Mobil spill that wreaked havoc in the Yellowstone River in July of 2011.

Today, the State of Montana, along with the Department of Interior, and Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks issued a notice of intent that they will now begin looking into ways to restore damage from the spill. A process they want Exxon Mobil to pay for.

Bob Gibson, From Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks tells us that, "They've come to the conclusion and have come to the realization that there is some damage that was not cleaned up, that was not stuff you can clean up. When you kill some fish, when you kill birds, when you oil the land, you can't clean that up by putting a bunch of people on it. So there is some damage to Montana as a result of that oil spill and as a result of the cleanup."

Gibson says the state will take Exxon Mobil to court if the oil company refuses to pay for the restoration research
