Ohio River clean up continues

CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- The cost of cleaning up diesel fuel from the Ohio River rings up at nearly $250,000 dollars a day.

Those efforts continued Wednesday, August 20 and were expected to wrap up Thursday, August 21st, 2014.  About 5,000 gallons of fuel leaked from Duke's Beckjord power station.
Wednesday officials said the spill was caused by a worker who left a valve open.  Cincinnati, Clermont County and Northern Kentucky closed water intakes but those have since re-opened.
Duke said it will pay for the clean up.
