Makami River, downstream of main site, June 26, 2015

Since the day of the derailment, CN's responders have worked diligently to remove oil from the river, prevent oil from migrating downstream, and remove oil-impacted soil and sediment at the site.  These efforts have been very successful and as a result, there is no longer a source of oil contamination in the soil or sediment that will cause continuing impacts to the water, wildlife or natural environment in the Makami River and Minisinakwa Lake.
