This occurred Sunday morning between 9-9:30am. We heard a long, loud screech and then saw two eruptions shoot up out of the river in that area of the river on both sides. It lasted over a minute.

Confusing article. At the beginning it states the backup pipeline leaked 3.9 million then later it states the valves were closed before the leak occurred. Somebody is trying to cover up or minimize the accident.
