INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Representatives with Marathon Petroleum Corporation say that more than 19,000 gallons of fuel product have now been recovered after fuel leaked out of a pipeline located near the CSX railroad tracks at West 56th and Arabian Run around 4 a.m. Thursday.
Sid Barth with Marathon Fuel says 19,139 gallons of fuel have now been recovered. Crews are hoping to complete repairs and have traffic open by rush hour Monday, but a timeline has not been determined.
Barth says weather could play a role in when repairs are complete.
No problems have been encountered with water in the area, she says. The Marion County Health Department has been on scene evaluating air and water conditions and have given no indication at this time of contamination.
Barth says businesses in the area have been understanding while roadways have had barricades posted.
Friday night, the barriers were moved further east from the Guion Road intersection for easier access to businesses in the strip mall nearby.
Residents concerned about ground water should contact Marion County Health Department at 317-221-2266.
