A controlled burn may help clean up what was left following a crude oil spill in Bristol Township

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is considering using a controlled burn on the creek on Mahan Denman Road, according to our print partners the Tribune Chronicle.

The valve for the well might have been deliberately opened on May 1, 2013 and 1,600 gallons of crude oil spilled from tank. Around 1,000 gallons of the oil has been cleaned up.
