Clean-up is underway following a fuel spill on the Drake University campus Tuesday.

Authorities say about 35-gallons of diesel leaked out of a fuel tank Tuesday morning. The fuel ran off into a storm drain and ended up in Closes Creek.

The DNR has placed booms on the creek to collect the fuel.

It’s also investigating the impact on aquatic life.
