Not good. I wonder what the environmental impact will be? That's high enough that it will impact a lot of relatively unspoilt water.

I thought that is the one that has had several spills in the past but it has probably been long enough to clear out again. It will have a terrible impact downstream.

I always considered the little P section at the spur contaminated from previous spills from that plant. This however is more than can be imagined and will have much large impact much farther downstream. Sad about the missing, praying for them and their families

The enviromental impact will be horrific. That is true, but my deeper grief goes out to the men who were killed in this incident and their families. That should be our greatest concern. The enviroment has a way of taking care of itself but this lose of life is all to tragic and will leave a hole for two different families. Our prayers go out for these people.
