Cleanup of small Mississippi River oil spill continues

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The cleanup of a small oil spill on the Mississippi River continued Monday morning.

According to the Coast Guard, Exxon spilled about 200 gallons of crude oil into the river near its refinery last week.

The majority of it has been cleaned, but crews spotted a light sheen on the water Sunday.

Exxon must submit a report to the Department of Environmental Quality by Wednesday.
