TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- State officials say crews have recovered 1500 gallons of diesel fuel from Shunganunga Creek in Topeka.

The fuel began spilling more than a week ago from Haag Oil's property near SE 17th and Adams.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment said Tuesday that Haag's environmental contractor continues working to vacuum up the spill. KDHE says oil-absorbent booms will remain on-site to capture any residual amounts.

State officials also say there is no evidence the fuel flowed further downstream.

Crews have been working seven hours a day since Friday in an effort to complete cleanup.
