Keystone oil pipeline shut after leak in St. Charles County

ST. CHARLES, COUNTY, Mo. – A section of the Trans-Canada Corporation’s Keystone oil pipeline is shut down after a possible leak in St. Charles County. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that a company technician happened to discover it during a routine check.

Bommarito Automotive SkyFox is heading to the location of the possible leak. The Department of Natural Resources says the leak is less than 2,000 feet south of the Mississippi River but it allegedly is not threatening the waterway.

Workers are still investigating what caused the leak.  It is estimated to be at least 1,800 gallons. That is according to an early report of what was visible at the surface. It is unclear if that estimate would change.

FOX 2 reporter Michelle Madaras is at the location of the leak.  She is developing this story for our newscasts.
