Cleanup continues today at the scene of a tanker truck rollover on Highway 29.
Ministry officials say 12,000 litres, or 12 cubic metres, of petroleum condensate was removed by two vac trucks Tuesday night, after the truck crashed in a ditch nine kilometres north of Hudson's Hope earlier that morning
The truck was carrying an estimated 40,000 litres of condensate.
"The amount that was spilled versus burned off in the fire is currently under investigation," a spokesman said.
"The responsible party is removing the truck today and an environmental response company will begin collecting samples to determine if there is contamination in the soil and if so, what the extent is."
No waterways are reported to be affected, and no sheen was reported to be found in the Peace River near the scene of the accident.
The truck crashed and caught fire shortly before 7 a.m. on Aug. 14. The driver was medevaced to hospital in Vancouver with serious injuries that are not considered life threatening.
All fire activity at the scene was extinguished Tuesday night, the ministry reports.
RCMP continue to investigate the cause of the crash, which has not yet been released.
The highway around the accident scene is open to single-lane alternating traffic.
