Tough day for the west branch of the Delaware

Let’s hope this can get cleaned up as quick as possible.  Last night a train derailed right above the Hale eddy bridge and 2 rail cars went into the water.  Fuel oil spilled into the river

Well, maybe some mosquito control as a side benefit?  

 

Bad joking aside, this is a shame.  Hopefully with the high water flow/rain we've had, if they cant contain it it will move through quickly.

I always wanted to try that spot. Does law enforcement ticket you for parking there or trespassing ?

Spoke to Digger

He says it's not that bad and is under control

The really bad stuff in the rail cars didn't leak

My bud Mark is there this weekend and he said the smell of diesel is still strong, but with all the rain hopefully not too much damage.

IF left alone and not further abused, its remarkable how nature seems to find a way.

 

Repeated abuses degrade the ability to bounce back.
