IDANHA, OR -- The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is on scene at Highway 22 near Idanha. Harry Esteve at DEQ says the double tanker had 10-thousand-600-gallons of fuel and 7-thousand-871 gallons spilled. He says the remaining 27-hundred gallons was recovered. Esteve says the fuel is getting into the North Santiam River and a sheen is visible a few hundred feet downstream of the crash site. He says there are absorbent booms to try to prevent more fuel from getting into the river, which is the water supply for nearby towns and the City of Salem.  Highway 22 will have to be rebuilt following the removal of diesel and gas fuel contamination of the road.
