COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Workers with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Friday continued to clean up the oil leak at Oak Glen Nature Preserve in Colerain Township that happened earlier this week.

So far they've collected about 9,100 gallons of oil and water from the scene.

Hamilton County Public Health is keeping an eye on water quality and other safety concerns.

Officials say oil has not been detected outside of any of the work zones.
