In Louisiana, the Associated Press reports that a barge carrying biodiesel moored on the lower Mississippi River near New Orleans has leaked nearly 10,000 gallons after a wake caused by another vessel slammed the barge into a concrete wall. The leak has since been stopped and measures put in place to absorb the leaked fuel. No water restrictions were issued as a result of the accident that led to the leak. The vessel was carrying 21,150 gallons of biodiesel.
