Cleanup of oil spill on Blackfeet Reservation about halfway done

The cleanup of an oil spill on the Blackfeet Nation in Montana is about 50 percent complete, The Great Falls Tribune reported.

About 840 gallons spilled on the reservation on June 12. But FX Drilling Co. didn't report it to the tribe or federal authorities until a month later, when it had already reached Cut Bank Creek.

The cleanup is estimated to cost about $150,000.
