Officials say cleanup efforts are still underway on the Mississippi River near LeClaire as crews work to recover the towboat that sank last week.
Crews from several agencies are working with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to prevent pollution from harming wildlife, and to restore the environment.
So far, crews say they’ve recovered about 61,970 gallons of oily-water mixture from the river, 88,801 gallons of oily-water mixture from the towboat, in addition to more than 1,800 cubic-feet of oily waste.
Officials remind the public that they should not handle oiled or injured wildlife.
The cause of the incident is still under investigation.
