Yesterday’s train derailment spilled crude oil into the James River. The impact of the spill won’t be fully known for days. Water quality tests are already being done by both the James River Association and the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality.
Over the coming weeks the DEQ will be monitoring substance levels in the James River. Folks at the James River Association ask you to do the same as well. If you see any kind if irregularity or effect from this spill, you’re asked to take a picture of it and send it to either agency.
