MADISON (WKOW) – A Petroleum pipeline between Green Bay and Milwaukee that was shut down due to a gasoline leak has been repaired.
West Shore Pipe Line Co. said in a statement early Sunday that the pipeline was restarted about 8 p.m. on Saturday.
The pipeline was shut down Tuesday after a leak was detected near Jackson. West Shore said crews are testing soil, air quality and water in the area where the leak happened. It said no harm to air quality or water has been detected.
Gov. Scott Walker issued an energy emergency proclamation on Saturday because of concerns the shutdown would cause gas shortages in the Green Bay area.
The proclamation makes gasoline truck drivers exempt from weekly hours of service restrictions on all state highways for 10 days.
