DOW spokesman, Randy Hampton, said that since the spill occurred in a calm and shallow area, the harmful liquids are less likely to spread to other sections of the river. For now, Hampton said biologists will keep a close eye on the aquatic life and waterfowl in the area and added that if they determine that any wildlife dies as a result of the derailment, Union Pacific could face fines. "The booms should collect any liquid that spilled," Hampton told the Sentinel. "As of now, we don't have any dead fish. That doesn't mean we won't, and we'll continue monitoring for the next several days."
