Governor Mike DeWine's Office has released new information on the East Palestine train derailment.

The derailment site continues to be the focus of cleanup efforts with more than 2.1 million gallons of liquid wastewater being hauled out of the village so far.

According to the Ohio EPA, the liquid has been taken to the following sites:

  • 1.6 million gallons to Texas Molecular in Deer Park, Texas
  • 300,000 gallons to Detroit Industrial Well in Romulus, Michigan
  • 190,000 gallons to Vickery Environmental in Vickery, Ohio

The Ohio EPA has hauled more than 1,400 tons of solid waste from the derailment site to four locations:

  • 440 tons to Heritage Environmental Services in North Roachdale, Indiana
  • 440 tons to U.S. Ecology Wayne Disposal in Belleville, Michigan
  • 370 tons to Heritage Thermal Services in East Liverpool, Ohio
  • 140 tons to Ross Incineration Services in Grafton, Ohio

According to the release, private well sampling is still ongoing and continues to show no harmful levels of contaminants.

The Ohio Department of Health received 12 more samples for testing as of noon Friday. Five of the wells showed no detectable contaminants and seven showed trace detections at levels well below safe drinking-water standards.

To date, 57 private well samples have been tested and none have shown any harmful contaminant levels from the derailment.

The EPA also announced that Norfolk Southern will be required to test for dioxins in East Palestine.
