CHENEY - State and local officials are continuing the clean up of a diesel fuel leak that reached Minnie Creek on July 20.
The leak was traced to an underground storage tank and vault at the Chevron gas station, 2302 First St., last week.
The state Department of Ecology, Cheney Public Works and GrayMar Environmental Services are still working to clean the area in and around Minnie Creek.
The effort is now focused on changing the absorbent material used to slow the spread of contaminants along the creek and skimming off any residual fuel.
Contractors are awaiting the results of soil tests...
