The state says XTO Energy responded with contractors Monday night to recover free liquid from the secondary containment area - a bermed area with a 60-mil liner.
On Tuesday, the company began removing contaminated snow and ice.

MY TAKE

I have learned to be highly suspicious of the Associated Press. WHY? During the BP blow out they leaned toward reporting what was in my terms NOT TRUTHFULL.

Thus when this story broke today I checked out the many other sites on the internet that was reporting the same story line and all of them used the same source the Associated Press.

NOW! We must wait until other reporters’ boots hit the ground with mind in the game to either prove wrong this very short rendition or confirm.

My bet is that there is far more to the story.
