Oil Spill on Riverwalk Museum Reach

By Bill O'Neil

You may notice something doesn't smell quite right along the Museum Reach section of the Riverwalk--and officials know exactly why. 
"There has been an oil spill on Museum Reach" said Roseanne Hughes with the San Antonio River Authority. She told 550 KTSA News there are a lot of questions about where that oil might have come from. 

"That's what we're trying to determine right now" Hughes said, adding "There is an odor of oil and there is some staining on the walkways and some nearby vegetation."

Officials are working with several agencies--including the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The hike and bike trail in the area of Ninth and Tenth Streets--as well as Avenue B remains open--but offiials said you should use caution if you're going to be passing through.
