BNSF spokesman Andy Williams said 14 of 32 oil tanker cars that derailed Friday just south of Doon in Lyon County leaked oil into surrounding floodwaters from the swollen Little Rock River.
Rock Valley mayor Kevin Van Otterloo says the swift floodwaters have quickly brought some of the oil about seven miles down the Rock River to Rock Valley. He says almost half the spill had been contained with booms near the derailment site and an additional boom placed approximately 5 miles (8.05 kilometers) downstream. We are containing the oil that was spilled as close to the incident as possible using containment booms and recovering it with skimmers and vacuum trucks. Crews will then use equipment to separate the oil from the water. Lyon County Sheriff Stewart Vander Stoep says the large oil slick threatens an already hard flood situation for the downstream city of Rock Valley.
Governor Reynolds is touring the area on Saturday and learning about the clean-up efforts, after declaring a disaster proclamation for Sioux County and four others in northwest Iowa.
BNSF had hazardous materials and environmental experts on the scene and had begun cleanup within hours of the derailment, Williams said.
A major part of that work includes building a temporary road parallel to the tracks to allow in cranes that can remove the derailed and partially submerged oil cars.
