DEP says BP spill impacted soil, not water

The MRJs Jesse Buchanan gives this update on the BP gasoline spill:

The state Department of Environmental Protection confirmed Friday that all the oil that leaked from a BP station tank went into the surrounding soil, and that neither groundwater or drinking wells were contaminated, according to Dennis Schain, DEP spokesman.

"We believe it went into the soil," Schain said. "There's no evidence that any drinking wells have been affected.
