Cimarron River Spill

A diesel tanker truck overturned on 27 December, spilling hundreds of gallons of fuel into the Cimarron river near Eagle Nest. New Mexico Environment Department and Game and Fish Department assisted in the cleanup, using absorbent booms to stem the downstream flow of the contaminant, and allowing the fuel to be pumped from the river. Four days later, authorities reported that the spill had been cleaned up, but that monitoring of the river would continue for several months.
