Oil Spill Hearing Postponed--Men Still Jailed

Horton Hearing Postponed

1490 NewsBlog
The emergency response to the oil spill on the Allegheny National Forest 10 days ago is over; but the clean up and other work is continuing.

The effort has been turned over to DEP's water management team, which will be working with the game commission, forest service, fish and boat commission and Weavertown Environmental Group on the clean up as well as full damage assessment and restoration of the waterways.

A Bradford father and son, Andrew and Christopher Horton, have been charged with causing and risking a catastrophe, among other crimes, for allegedly working together to release about 45,000 gallons of crude oil from Snyder Brothers' tanks.

An estimated 19,000 gallons of crude oil has been clean up from soil and the water surface so far. The oil killed thousands of fish along with other aquatic and wildlife.

The Hortons had been scheduled for a preliminary hearing today, but that's been moved to September 10.

They're still being held in McKean County Jail.
