In January of 2015, another oil pipeline ruptured upstream of Glendive. The Montana conservationist and writer Alexis Bonogofsky, whose family farms along a stretch of the river contaminated by the 2011 spill, wrote this, of the 2015 spill: "Sonar testing showed about 110 feet of pipeline was exposed along the bottom of the river. In one area, river scour had removed almost an entire foot of dirt and rocks underneath the pipe, leaving it completely exposed for 22 feet. During this 'release'—which is the term that industry and government use to refer to oil spills—over 42,000 gallons of oil spilled into the Yellowstone River." Bonogofsky continues, "When oil spills happen, not just those on the Yellowstone, I feel like I'm living in the movie "Groundhog Day," except I get to relive oil company executives and government officials saying the same things about pipeline safety. 'We need to learn from this,' 'We need to reexamine the federal rules regarding depth of cover,' 'This is serious.'" Her excellent essay, written from the point of view of someone for whom the spills are not just distant news: "I made one trip to the hospital with acute hydrocarbon exposure, along with many other people who live along the river and, for one year after the spill, it hurt my lungs to take a deep breath. We are on year five and countless hours of trying to rebuild our soil and restore our pastures back to their original condition."
