Emergency response crews with "TAS" environmental company are once again working behind a Bossier City neighborhood cleaning up what is now identified as MC-30 cut-back asphalt. MC-30 is commonly used in road construction.
At the end of June, about 500 gallons of the product spilled into a storm drain that ran off into the ditch. Authorities believe Monday's rain pushed the rest of the product out of a catch basin in the sewer system.
DEQ says this is all part of the clean up.
"They have to continue to do flushing of the storm drains and also when we have rain events monitor that and when you no longer have any type of oil residual in the ditch they can start excavating removing the contaminated soil" says DEQ environmental staff scientist, Ronnie Kay.
Kay says it will cost around $50 thousand to clean up the spill.
He says there's no danger to humans.
