That thing the Standing Rock protesters were afraid of just happened - ScienceAlert

That thing the Standing Rock protesters were afraid of just happened - ScienceAlert 176,000 gallons of oil spilling into a nearby creek.
A faulty pipeline has leaked 176,000 gallons of crude oil into a creek and the surrounding countryside 2.5 hours away from the Standing Rock protests in North Dakota.
The spill, which went undetected by the pipeline owners until a local stumbled on it, has spread almost 7 km (5.4 miles) from the site of the leak, and at this stage, it’s not clear what caused the pipe to rupture, or how long it’s been leaking.
