St. Johns Oil Spill to be Cleaned by Weekend

Published 5/23/08
JEA says an oil spill in the St. Johns River should be cleaned up by the weekend.

When a construction company hammeriing pilings into the St. Johns River accidentally cut into a JEA power line, it didn't hit electricity, it hit oil.

The best estimate is a couple hundred gallons were slowly released throughout the day Thursday, but the oil is mineral based and not dangerous.
