Oil recovery workers from Swat Consulting recover oil from the ice on the Yellowstone River near Glendive.  Workers recovered about 10 barrels of oily/water mixture Sunday, of which 50% is estimated to be oil.

A sonar survey of the Poplar Pipeline where it crosses the Yellowstone River near Glendive, MT shows that the pipeline is exposed on the river bed for approximately 50 feet near the site of the breach. At one point, the bottom of the river bed is about one foot (1 ft) below the pipeline.
